Notes from the Winemaker:
The Hommage à nos pairs Reserve is the first red we made back in 2008, a tribute to my mentors, is a cofermented Syrah with a hint of Grenache and Roussanne. Coming from the finest terroirs in the Willow Creek area, it has 5% of our first Estate fruits. 


Ratings & Reviews


95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A blend of 93% Syrah, 5% Grenache and 2% Roussanne that was fermented with 5-10% stem inclusion and aged 15 months in new French oak, the 2011 Hommage a Nos Pairs Reserve is more supple and upfront than the L’Insolent and offers up deep, layers aromas of raspberry ganache, creme de cassis, chocolate, vanilla and hints of spice on the nose. Full-bodied, voluptuously textured and incredibly polished, with sweet tannin, this sexy, no-holds-barred effort will deliver the goods over the coming 5-7 years, possibly longer. Drink now-2020." - Jeb Dunnuck (Aug 2013)

91 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2011 Hommage a Nos Pairs is beautiful in this vintage. Crushed rocks, spices, new leather, white flowers and sweet dark cherries wrap around the palate as the wine opens up in the glass. A dark, sumptuous wine, the 2011 possesses striking inner perfume and gorgeous length. The blend is 93% Syrah, 5% Grenache and 2% Roussanne that was co-fermented with the Syrah." - Antonio Galloni (July 2013)
