*** 90 points - Wine Enthusiast ***
A bold yet smooth wine with aromas of raspberries, blackberries and plum with smoked bacon. Following on the palate are dark berries, hickory and leather with a full, medium length, silky finish.
Cooked cherries, wild chaparral and toasted oak aromas show on this estate bottling from a promising project in San Diego County. It's a classic, down-the-middle Syrah on the palate, where savory herbs of sage and thyme spice up the boysenberry fruit, with vanilla, star anise and mint arising toward the finish. - Wine Enthusiast
