We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

This old vineyard consistently produces very attractive, well balanced wine with no rough edges, just perfume style and elegance. Ages very well. Aristocratic!

Wine AdvocateThe 2003 Syrah Brookman Vineyard possesses great intensity, layers of flavor, exceptionally pure creme de cassis fruit, and hints of black truffles as well as charcoal. This full-bodied, fruit-driven, fabulously well-endowed Syrah should drink well for 12-16 years.

Wine EnthusiastSmells indescribably good, but it's hard to pick out specific scents-think instead of farmers' market of the freshest fruit. It's no slouch on the palate, either, where the impression is similarly seamless: In the mix you might discern a rainbow of just-ripe fruit, earth and wheat toast, for starters. It's balanced, restrained and pretty, and should stay that way through at least 2010.

Wine SpectatorFirm, with racy blackberry, spice and something like lime lingering in the background, finishing with refinement. Drink now through 2010. 800 cases made.
