Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 98+

Checking in at the same alcohol level of 14.2% as the 2008, the 2007 Syrah Armada Vineyard is a noticeably bigger, richer, more full-bodied wine that exhibits thrilling white pepper, underbrush, cedary spice and sweet dark fruits on both the nose and palate. Big, full-bodied, decadent and massive, yet still balanced and even elegant, it has surprising tannic grip through the finish and certainly doesn't lack for length. It's beautiful now for sure, but will be even better in another 2-3 years.

($70) Deep, bright red-ruby. Pungent aromas of black pepper, smoke, flint and dark raspberry. Super-silky and concentrated, with a texture that's simultaneously chewy and seamless. The intense blackberry flavor is lifted by strong black pepper and garrigue notes that carry through to the extremely long, gripping finish. This syrah's lovely combination of sweet dark berry fruit and saline character makes it a very satisfying and complex drink.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

Broad and spicy, this is distinctive for the burnt tobacco, cherry, blackberry and roasted red pepper flavors, finishing with depth and expression. Not a crowd-pleasing profile, but has plenty to offer.

Wine Advocate # 190 Aug 2010 Jay Miller The 2007 Syrah Armada Vineyard (100%) was aged in Rostaing puncheons, one of them new, for 30 months. Aromatically, it is the most brooding and Cote-Rotie-like of these Syrahs with notes of smoke, meat, game, garrigue, lavender, and blueberry. The most tightly wound of the Syrahs, it is the one that will most profit from several years of cellaring. It should offer prime drinking from 2014 to 2027.

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.
