2014— 97 points
The inky colored 2014 Syrah Soberanes Vineyard is just drop dead gorgeous, and I suspect the greatest wine made to date from this site. Deep ruby/purple colored, with liquid violet, black raspberries, cassis, graphite, and hints of charcoal, it hits the palate with sensational depth of fruit, full-bodied richness and a layered, multi-dimensional texture that keeps you coming back to the glass. Nevertheless, it’s shut down slightly since I tasted in on release, and I suspect it’s best forgotten for a year or three. There’s just 115 cases made, don’t miss it!
