Inky dark fruit, chocolate, spice, leather, menthol and licorice all build in a deep, expansive Syrah loaded with character. The 20% whole clusters are evident, but not at all dominant. More than anything else, the Sierra Mar Syrah possesses tremendous vertical intensity as well as purity. What a wine! -- Antonio Galloni

Blueberries, darker currants, smoked game, black olives, and licorice notes all emerge from the glass, and its medium to full-bodied, with a wonderful texture, terrific richness, and a great finish. It's another just straight-up delicious effort from this estate that's impossible to resist. Nevertheless, it's going to keep for 7-8 years with no issues.

Plump and polished, with well-structured blackberry, cracked pepper, meat and espresso flavors that glide on a rich finish. Drink now through 2029. — T.F.

The palate is fully fruited but surprisingly lifted and plush, laced with nuanced flavors and finishing long and fresh. Lovely! - Erin Brooks
