K Vintners

It’s like a mouthful of crush stone, roasted earth, grilled meat, thyme all in a velvet sack. Absolutely seamless and a very sophisticated drink. A top Motor City Kitty!

Reviews

  • "94-96 points. The 2012 Syrah Motor City Kitty is another incredible Syrah from this estate that does everything right (including selling for a crazy low price). Giving up plenty of creme de cassis, licorice, crushed rock and subtle vanilla nuances, it’s full-bodied and incredibly polished on the palate, with ultra-fine tannin structure and gorgeous concentration that never seems cumbersome or heavy. Made from 100% Syrah and coming all from sandy soils, it’s blockbuster stuff that will have 10-15 years of longevity.” (Wine Advocate)
  • "93 points. Rich and generous, layered with freshly ground pepper and black olive flavors around a core of deep cherry and floral notes, finishing with presence and persistence against nubby tannins. Best from 2018 through 2022. 446 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
