Reviews

  • "94 points. Plush and generous, with roasted meat and green olive flavors underlying rich currant, plum and spice character, which swirls through the long, expressive finish against refined tannins. Offers great presence and depth. Drink now through 2025. 447 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
  • "93 points. The 2012 Syrah The Deal Sundance Vineyard is another great vintage here. Giving up lots of minerality in its classic Syrah nose of smoked meats, licorice, toasted spice and both kirsch and darker berry fruit, it's voluptuous, full-bodied, concentrated and already drinking beautifully. Given its balance, it will have a decade or more of longevity." (Wine Advocate)
