A perennial standout, this Syrah is cofermented with 10% Viognier, all fruit sourced from a site on the western edge of Sonoma Mountain in the cool confines of the Petaluma Gap. Beautiful and bold, it imparts a focused line of blackberry and lavender flavors over a lush backdrop of sizzling acidity and smoked meat scents.

Antonio Galloni's Vinous, March 2017
Rose petal, plum, black pepper and blood orange are some of the signatures in the 2013 Syrah Rodgers Creek Vineyard. Bold and powerful in the glass, with plenty of cool-climate savoriness, the 2013 packs a real punch... Rose petal, plum, black pepper and blood orange are some of the signatures in the 2013 Syrah Rodgers Creek Vineyard. Bold and powerful in the glass, with plenty of cool-climate savoriness, the 2013 packs a real punch. Closing bursts of acidity and tannin suggest the 2013 will benefit from at least some cellaring. The 2013 was done with about 25% whole clusters. A generous dollop (10%) of Viognier adds further aromatic brightness.

Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages, August 2017
It's not cheap but it is stunning. Fans of northern Rhône wines will recognise the class, gloss, excitement and majestic fragrance of ripe Syrah, all leather and black pepper, but this is not a frail embryonic bud. It's... It's not cheap but it is stunning. Fans of northern Rhône wines will recognise the class, gloss, excitement and majestic fragrance of ripe Syrah, all leather and black pepper, but this is not a frail embryonic bud. It's already a gorgeous wine in full bloom, overlaid with just the right level of ripeness – nothing excessively sweet but enough to make it gulpable already. Think juicy black olives and something particularly savoury – umami, perhaps. As usual with any tasting note on JancisRobinson.com, we try to suggest a drinking window and in this case I think probably 2016 to 2024 – quite an extended one for a California Syrah, but then Ramey's wines are hugely distinctive.

Wine Spectator, January 2017
Enticing aromas of smoky beef, crushed stone and grilled herb lead to complex, well-structured blueberry and blackberry flavors, with accents of bacon, black olive and licorice. Drink now through 2028. 380 cases made. –TF

The medium-bodied palate is earthy/savory in character, with a solid frame of chewy tannins and plenty of spice layers on the finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
