2017 Torbreck "Woodcutter's" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

93 points James Suckling: "Loads of brambleberries and dried elderberries are framed against dried meat, bark, vanilla, mocha and dark chocolate. Plush yet energetic on the palate, this weaves round, chewy and decadent tannins and runs them through a luxurious tapestry of dark fruit. Drink now or hold." (06/2019) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Aromatic and stylish, opening with violet, white pepper and subtle sweet cream notes. The core gushes with huckleberry and wild blueberry flavors, revealing shades of rosemary and apricot. Supple and smooth, with tan ...

2017 Stolpman "Para Maria" Santa Barbara County Red Blend

92-95 points Vinous: "The 2017 Syrah Para Maria is another attractive wine from Stolpman. Here, too, the fruit is bright, precise and articulate, which is to say quite a departure from the style of the 2016. Generous and pliant on the palate, with no hard edges and striking aromatics, the 2017 is shaping up to be a real beauty. The 2017 is a blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Petite Verdot (all purchased fruit) done with about 40% carbonic maceration. Don't miss it.

2017 Tensley "Colson Canyon Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Syrah

Possessing full bodied richness, impressive purity of fruit, and a big finish, it’s another winner that will keep for 10-15 years."

2017 Pax "Sonoma-Hillsides" Sonoma County Syrah

94 points Vinous: " In the glass, the 2017 is richer, sweeter and more immediate than the much darker and more brooding 2016, with a distinct red fruit character. Best of all, it will drink well upon release. All things considered, Pax Mahle turned out a brilliant Syrah in 2017 and my guess is that less extreme vintages will provide an opportunity for him to match the 2016 – which, in my view, remains his best wine ever. Vineyard sites are Walker Vine Hill, Nellessen Vineyard, Castelli-Knight Ranch and Griffin's Lair. (AG)" (05/2019) 90 points Jeb Dunn ...

2017 Bedrock Wine Company "Coast to Foothills" California Syrah

Silky, plush and beautifully perfumed, it is laced with the essence of sweet red cherry, lavender, rose petal, mint, blood orange and dried flowers. This succulent, inviting Syrah will drink well right out of the gate.

Winemaker's Notes :"The focus of Piedrasassi's wine program is cool-climate syrah.

Our vineyards sites range from Ballard Canyon in the east to the Santa Rita Hills and Arroyo Grande in the west.
