"At the top of the pyramid is the 2005 Syrah Astralis Vineyard. It is sourced from a vineyard planted in 1920 & is one of the Syrah cuvees in which 100% new oak is utilized (along with Brookman, Hickinbotham, and Piggott Range). It delivers an ethereal bouquet of smoky oak, violets, espresso, black pepper, blueberry, & blackberry liqueur. Densely packed & tightly wound, all it needs is time. The wine is totally harmonious, impeccably balanced, & exceptionally long. When it fully unwinds, even my high rating will appear conservative. Its only competition comes from the likes of Guigal, Chapoutier, Chave, Krankl, & Ringland." - Robert Parker

"Supple, graceful & pointedly focused, offering a whoosh of blackberry, cherry, dusky spice & clotted cream character that zings across the palate, picking up hints of espresso & mineral as the finish rockets on & on. Impressive for its deceptive power & harmony. Best from 2010 through 2020." - Wine Spectator
