Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, February 2004
An impressive display of rich zesty wild berry raspberry jam and blackberry flavors framed by firm acidity and integrated tannins and finishing with a long concentrated aftertaste that keeps revealing new flavor facets... An impressive display of rich zesty wild berry raspberry jam and blackberry flavors framed by firm acidity and integrated tannins and finishing with a long concentrated aftertaste that keeps revealing new flavor facets. Ample tannins for short-term cellaring. Drink now through 2012. 325 cases made. (JL)

Also evolving gracefully and drinking at point, the 2001 James Berry Vineyard Bone Rock (92% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre and 3% Grenache which spent 22 months in French and Hungarian oak) offers up serious purity and richness... Also evolving gracefully and drinking at point, the 2001 James Berry Vineyard Bone Rock (92% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre and 3% Grenache which spent 22 months in French and Hungarian oak) offers up serious purity and richness, with a silky, seamless profile on the palate. Creme de cassis, blackberry, licorice, roasted meats and hints of vanilla and graphite all show here, and this full-bodied Syrah is still balanced, with excellent mid-palate richness and terrific length. Taking an hour to perform at its best, and holding up beautifully over the evening, it’s in no danger of falling apart, and I’ve no doubt it will have a gradual evolution over the coming decade or so. - Jeb Dunnuck
