"This is a new wine for us and we are very happy with the way it turned out. It comes from Terra Bella Vineyard, which is located in the hills of Westside Paso Robles. (Terra Bella in English is Beautiful Earth). The Syrah comes from a south- facing hillside which is planted in limestone soil. The nose has very strong scents of dark fruit, stone, spice, and wildflowers. It has great intensity on the palate, with flavors of blackberry, graphite, and incense and a long, full finish. Only 168 cases produced."

92 points "The sensational 2005 Beautiful Earth Proprietary Red, a blend of primarily Syrah and a small amount of Mourvedre, is reminiscent of a first-class northern Rhone from France. Complex aromatics of smoke, spring flowers, damp earth, blueberries, raspberries, and cherries are followed by a wine with gorgeous ripeness, medium to full body, good underlying acidity as well as purity, fine texture, and superb intensity. This beauty should be consumed over the next 6-7 years." Best 2007-2014
