There are 175 cases of the 2002 IX Syrah Estate. One hundred percent destemmed fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in Burgundy barrels before being bottled unfined and unfiltered this Cote Rotie-like Syrah smells... There are 175 cases of the 2002 IX Syrah Estate. One hundred percent destemmed fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in Burgundy barrels before being bottled unfined and unfiltered this Cote Rotie-like Syrah smells like it contains some Viognier although it does not. Exotic floral characteristics intermixed with notions of tapenade blackberries coffee and chocolate jump from the glass of this full-bodied yet supple-textured voluptuously-styled red. Already irresistible this fabulous Syrah can be enjoyed over the next 7-10 years.

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, June 2005
Dark rich and intense with a chewy core of beefy roasted plum and wild berry fruit accented by a dash of white pepper. An immense youngster that shows remarkable depth and concentration. For its size muscle and power... Dark rich and intense with a chewy core of beefy roasted plum and wild berry fruit accented by a dash of white pepper. An immense youngster that shows remarkable depth and concentration. For its size muscle and power there's an underlying sense of elegance and finesse. Best from 2007 through 2014. 150 cases made.

Saturated ruby. Aromas of raspberry bacon fat smoked meat and woodsmoke. Superripe flavors of roasted raspberry and woodsmoke. A saline thick wine that saturates the palate. Plenty of sexy oak showing; in fact I find this... Saturated ruby. Aromas of raspberry bacon fat smoked meat and woodsmoke. Superripe flavors of roasted raspberry and woodsmoke. A saline thick wine that saturates the palate. Plenty of sexy oak showing; in fact I find this more oaky than the 2003 which is aging in all new barrels. Finishes with broad major tannins and terrific length.
