Reviews

  • "93 points. The most northern Rhone-like in the lineup, the 2011 Syrah The Deal Sundance Vineyard exhibits gorgeous blackberry and cassis-styled fruits, olive, pepper and underbrush in its juicy, medium to full-bodied, nicely focused personality. Seamless and elegant, with solid mid-palate depth, it, too, will over a decade of prime drinking." (Wine Advocate)
  • "92 points. A fresh, expressive and open-textured red, offering an array of red berry, black cherry, licorice and subtle smoke notes as the finish sails on against fine, well-integrated tannins. Drink now through 2021. 429 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
