94 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The 2008 Syrah Thompson Vineyard makes a fascinating contrast to the Terra Bella. Black pepper, leather, spices, violets and white flowers are some of the notes that emerge from the Thompson Vineyard. It shows the freshness and tannic spine of a cold-weather Syrah but with more than enough fruit to provide balance. A long finish rounds things out in style. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.
