(WA91-93 points) The only 2013 I was able to taste from this estate, the 2013 Syrah Patrina offers full-bodied richness and depth, lots of dark fruits, cassis, licorice and graphite, perfect ripeness and a polished, elegant personality. Shining for its purity, it's ready to go and will shine on release. - Jeb Dunnuck

Smoke-accented black and blue fruits and a hint of violet on the fragrant nose. Gently sweet and expansive in the mouth, offering juicy blackberry and boysenberry flavors sharpened by a jolt of cracked pepper.

Rich and ripe black fruit lay the groundwork upon opening, while traces of smoke, cocoa, tobacco and earth float above. Bold and full bodied, with flavors of juicy berries and spice that spread out on the sumptuously textured palate. Medium tannins and acid make this quite appealing now, but the structure is there for another 5-10 years of aging.
