“The 2012 Syrah Timbervine utilizes 17% whole clusters and is situated at a 700 foot elevation. From the Durell clone of Syrah, this wine exhibits an inky/ruby/plum color as well as a sweet perfume of black currants, blackberries, licorice and black olives. Medium to full-bodied with excellent ripeness along with outstanding purity and texture, it combines power with elegance. Consume it over the next 7-8 years.”–Robert M. Parker, Jr.
