Notes from the Winemaker:

Great density and structure with deep ruby red colour. Defined presence of mature dark fruits (berrie´s marmelade) and cassis with perfectly integrated vanilla notes (coming from the best selection of French new oak barrels). The wine is mouth filling, velvety and robust at the same time. Dense. In the mouth there are layers of ripe black fruit, black cherries and ripe plums, beautifully integrated with the smokiness typically from Syrah. Mouthfilling and lengthy. In all ways, unique wine that has become a cult wine.


Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Dense, large-scale wine, with thick layers of blackberry, boysenberry, mocha and espresso flavors supported by lush, powerful tannins. Big, smoky, tarry finish. The oak is dominant now, but the stuffing is certainly here. One for the cellar. Syrah. Best from 2007 through 2011. 1,200 cases made." – JM (Nov 30, 2005)

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Super dark; almost black like night. This is big-boned New World Syrah from the Apalta Vineyard, and the aromas of violets and cherry are appealing. Big in the mouth, with bracing acidity and a lot of spare tannin. Very chewy and ripe, with vivid fruit. You won't find other wines like this; it's one of a kind. Imported by T.G.I.C. Importers." - Michael Schachner (3/1/2006)
