"Dense, tight and concentrated, with firm dried berry, sage, mineral, scorched earth and peppery flavors. Full-bodied, intense and powerful, yet showing a measure of restraint and finesse. Best from 2012 through 2022. 560 cases made. " (WS)

"Consistently one of the great Syrahs made in California is Carol Meredith’s offering from Mt. Veeder. Lagier Meredith’s stunning 2008 Syrah reveals an opaque ruby/purple hue along with a gloriously intense perfume of roasted meats, herbs, barbecue smoke, burning embers, plums and acacia flowers. The wine possesses exceptional intensity, a full-bodied opulence and not a hard edge to be found. It is a beautifully complex, ethereal Syrah to drink over the next 7-10 years. " (WA)

"Good bright ruby. Perfumed aromas of plum, raspberry, spices, flowers and lead pencil, plus a suggestion of exotic fruits. Supple, shapely and quite dry, with very good intensity but also a pliant texture to its dark berry and pepper flavors. Shows a lovely light touch thanks to a firm acid spine. Finishes with building tannins that reach the front teeth. This should gain in weight with time in bottle." (IWC)
