Sequel Syrah 2009 - Wine Advocate

"Chocolate, mocha and brown spice elements are prominent already in the nose. There is dark berry juiciness along with hints of mint, black pepper and smoky black tea to take this wine in a proper direction."

Sequel Syrah 2009 - Stephen Tanzer's Intl. Wine Cellar

"Complex, scented nose combines crushed rock, licorice, blackberry, smoked meat, black pepper and graphite. A bright, intense fruit bomb in the mouth, with dark berry flavors accented by cocoa powder, black pepper, dark chocolate and rosemary. Very clean and primarily Syrah with terrific depth. Finishes with a serious tannic spine for aging and sublte rocky character."

Sequel Syrah 2009 - Wine Spectator

"Focused, plush and generous, with pomegranate-accented dark berry and tobacco flavors, striking a nice balance of suppleness, rich flavors and expansion on the finish."

Sequel Syrah 2009 - Wine Enthusiast

"Rich, dark, dense and smoky, this is a fruit-driven Syrah that has a spendid bouquet of ripe black fruit. Some herbal accents and a streak of bark runs through the tannins."
