TASTING NOTES

"Incredible aromas of grilled meat, blackberries, rose petals and black velvet. Medium to full body and ultra-velvety tannins — even if this doesn't show at first. It lags for five or six seconds and then grows and grows. Linear structure." JamesSuckling.com

"Lastly, the 2014 Syrah IX Estate has this incredibly fragrant, flowery bouquet that makes it seem as if there were some Viognier co-fermented with it, but it’s always 100% Syrah coming from their steep vineyards. Oodles of honeysuckle, blackberry, black cherry, graphite and some exotic white fruits seem present in this full-bodied, lush, savory, sexy and intense wine that is irresistible in 2014, and for that reason, destined to be drunk in its first 10-15 years, although I suspect it could last longer."

"Potent and brooding, yet polished, with plum, smoky beef and cracked pepper flavors that build depth and tension toward big but refined tannins. Drink now through 2025. 355 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Colgin's 2014 Syrah comes across as especially fruit-driven in this vintage. Crème de cassis, plum, red cherry, spice and licorice give the 2014 its deep, plush personality. Powerful and plush, the 2014 offers tons of intensity. It will be interesting to see if the 2014 develops more varietal character over time. Today, it is incredibly primary."
