92 Points & Editors Choice Wine Enthusiast Magazine | "Attractive but subtle spices brighten the red cherry and black plum notes in this full-bodied and firmly structured wine. Hints of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg emerge in the aromas and stay buzzing through the concentrated palate and on to the finish." Jim Gordon, October 2019

93 Points & Editor's Choice Wine Enthusiast Magazine | "This wine tastes bold and assertive, pushing smoky oak and vanilla flavors close to the edge but rescuing them with attractive ripe flavors of blackberry and black cherry. The wine is full bodied, layered and mouthcoating, supported by moderate tannins that melt into the bold flavors." Reviewed by Jim Gordon

92 Points Wine Enthusiast Magazine | "[T]his subtle and complex wine combines peach and vanilla flavors with fig, crushed rock and bright acidity. The creamy mouthfeel stays well balanced as lemon and crisp apple notes come forward on the mid-palate and linger through the finish."

SKU: 17SEVED

92 Points Wine Enthusiast Magazine | "This classy wine offers a mix of spice rack and black cherry aromas, with rich plum, earth and rhubarb flavors. There is balance between ripeness of fruit and tension from the tannins and acidity. It stands on it own as a beautifully complex but not heavy wine." Reviewed by Jim Gordon

92 Points Wine&Spirits Magazine | "This grows at Skinner’s Stoney Creek estate in Fair Play, where the petite sirah ranges from ten to 20 years old. It accounts for 86 percent of the blend, augmented with small amounts of counoise, syrah, viognier, grenache and mourvedre. Those other grapes may help to leaven petite’s tannins, which have mellowed over the course of two years in French oak (55 percent new) and a year in bottle. What’s left are scents of rocks and flowers, along with the chewy grape-skin tannins of petite. The wine is as black as you might expect; it’s also crunchy, and the floral notes keep coming on the finish. This should develop well with six to eight more years in bottle"

92 Points Wine&Spirits Magazine | "Focused on syrah, grenache and mourvedre from Skinner’s Stoney Creek estate, this wine’s full-on richness emphasizes bright strawberry scents, succulent cherry flavors and a pretty, earthy scent that brings to mind freshly turned garden soil. One-third of the lot ages in new French oak, lending a toasty scent to underline the wine’s warm generosity. Decant it for grilled quail."

91 Points Wine&Spirits Magazine | "This makes a bright and airy first impression, with mountain-grown freshness to its sweet strawberry flavors. It’s a blend of mostly grenache, with some mourvedre and syrah, most of it purchased fruit. Oak adds a smoky element, but it’s the green-peppercorn spice and brisk strawberry fruit that lasts."

90 Points Wine&Spirits Magazine | "As a young wine it’s a big bruiser, focused [...] black-skinned fruit, with notes of chocolate, anise and black pepper trailing those tannins in the end. Brisk, tough and powerful, this is a mouth-filling red to decant for slow-braised short ribs"

90 Points Wine Enthusiast Magazine | "This full-bodied wine has a high ripeness factor and also a solid structure of fruit acidity and moderate tannins to nicely support the jammy raspberry and blackberry flavors that are so tempting." Reviewed by Jim Gordon

Syrah is a versatile varietal and has the ability to produce great wines in various climates and regions. Styles and profiles vary as you move from the cooler coastal sites towards the warmer interior vineyards. The Foothills based Syrahs are distinctive to the specific region in which they grow. Amador Syrah is typically bigger and rounder than the Fair Play (El Dorado) Syrah grown just up the hill, which tends to be more restrained and rustic in nature while showing pronounced minerality.
