Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 100

The 2005 Syrah Armada Vineyard is the wine of the vintage. Incredible on all accounts, with jaw-dropping purity and complexity in its chocolate covered fruits, truffle, roasted herb, smoke and beef-blood-driven bouquet, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a seamless, stacked and concentrated mid-palate and still present, yet sweet tannin. One of those rare wines that can marry incredible decadence with incredible purity and elegance, drink it anytime over the coming 15+ years.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

Deft, crisp and open-textured, unfurling its mineral- and olive-accented cherry and spice flavors. All of it mingles expressively on the refined finish.

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.
