94 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The inky/blue/purple-tinged 2007 Syrah Thompson Vineyard (one of the oldest Syrah vineyards in Santa Barbara County) displays pure bouquet garni notes intermixed with creme de cassis, licorice, and pepper characteristics. Full-bodied, dense, and rich with silky tannins and abundant fruit and glycerin, this beauty should evolve easily for a decade or more. (08/09)
