Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

Glass-staining ruby. Intense, spice-accented aromas of cassis, violet and smoky minerals show distinct superripeness and power. Spicy, deep dark berry compote and floral pastille flavors offer excellent focus and vivacity for their richness, with a peppery flourish adding energy. The impressively long floral, smoky finish features building tannins and a strong licorice nuance.

Smooth and distinctive for its black olive, licorice and balsamic overtones around a core of dark, brooding blackberry and currant fruit. Lingers intensely.

The most open of the wines in the vertical. It opens with the nose soaring from the glass -- ripe blackberries, blueberries, and toasty oak. The body was recently balanced -- more deeply ripe blackberries, sweet plum, raspberry, and a hint of sweet fig. The finish was perfectly balanced with sweet tannins and a hint of acidity complementing each other. The final taste went on for over 45+ seconds. My WOTN but number 3 WOTN for the group.

Very dark, inky purple. Almost black. Full bodied. Terrific Shiraz. Aromas and flavors of currant, earth and spices. You can chew onthis wine as it is very thick. Surprisingly not as tannic as expected. Uber-concentrated. Felt like we rushed it a bit. Heady. High alcohol. Yummy

About This Producer


In 1998 Jayson Woodbridge released his first vintage, one Cabernet, made from his own 10-acre Kayli Morgan Vineyard. The goal was to create a "Right Bank" style Cabernet from those clay soils. With the second vintage, he earned scores in the mid-90s and sold the wine for double the previous vintage. In addition to the Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan Vineyard, Woodbridge produces a Howell Mountain Cabernet from The Ark Vineyard and a single-vineyard Shiraz from his Ancient Way Vineyard in Barossa Valley.

Wine Varietal: Syrah


While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
