Sequel Syrah 2007 - Wine Enthusiast - Cellar Selection

"Pungent and spicy, dark and brooding, this wine brings with it deep, sappy berry fruit and overtones of meat and garrigue, all with muscle and verve. Tannins are firm and hard, showing some ripe stem and earth flavors, and plenty of barrel toast. Muscular and warm, this Syrah walks the line pefectly between the Rhone and Barassa."

Sequel Syrah 2007 - Wine Spectator

"Ripe and round, delivering a lively mouthful of blueberry, plum, floral, and white pepper flavors that cascade around one another through the long, vivid finish."

Sequel Syrah 2007 - Stephen Tanzer's Intl. Wine Cellar

 "Bright ruby-red. Knockout nose combines raspberry, smoked meat, pepper and an ineffable floral quality. Then fat, concentrated and surprisingly dry and classic, with palate-staining flavors of black raspberry, blackberry and pepper. Offers superb breadth with a light touch."

Sequel Syrah 2007 - Wine Advocate

 "A glass-coating opaque purple color, it emits an expressive bouquet of smoked meat, bacon, lavender, sage, blueberry, and plum. On the palate it is plush and layered suggesting readiness for near-term drinking. However, there is ample underlying structure for those wanting to wait for a more aged character."
