Wine AdvocateThe first vintage for the 2011 Syrah Cattle King, it's a blend of 100% Syrah that's all from Snipes mountain AVAs and vines planted in 2001. Offering up fabulous purity, with notes of black cherry, big minerality, earth and subtle underbrush aromas and flavors, it offers full-bodied richness, sweet tannin and thrilling length on the finish. Drink over the coming decade or more.

Wine SpectatorGritty tannins surround a juicy core of blackberry and floral flavors, persisting into the long and open-textured finish. Drink now through 2019.
