Notes from the Winemaker:

The nose on this 2012 Allan just explodes with sage, grilled meat, black pepper and sweet tobacco. On the palate this wine is very rich and full bodied. This shows mostly black fruit, dried herbs and BBQ spices. The finish on this sails on forever and only starts to taper off after 40 seconds. This is a Syrah to take and enjoy with your best friends or pair with your favorite meal. While this is great now it should slowly age and evolve into an even more amazing wine over the next 5 years.

Ratings & Reviews



95-97 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
Barrel sample. Review not yet released.

95 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"An extraordinary effort that is rich, gutsy, dense and powerful, but with a seam of elegance and refinement that highlights the range of stewed beef, pepper, beef carpaccio and Bolognese sauce. A fascinating, distinctive experience. Drink now through 2024. 200 cases made." -JL (Dec 31, 2012)

93 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"(15.3% alcohol; from Alban clones; finished with 15% whole clusters; underwent some post-fermentation maceration): Good dark red. Highly aromatic nose combines red berries, licorice, spices, lavender, garrigue and pepper. Powerful and sweet, with terrific acidity framing the berry, floral and licorice flavors. Very long and bright on the back end, finishing with substantial broad tannins." -Stephen Tanzer (May/Jun 14)
