100 points "A riveting example of Syrah is the 2002 Orion. It boasts a black/purple color with more mint and blackberry notes intermixed with exotic floral characteristics. With great intensity, full body, multiple dimensions, and superb purity as well as length, this blockbuster is incredibly well-balanced/harmonious. It should drink reasonably well young, yet keep for 12-15 years. (96-100)" Best 2004-2019

85 points "Aromas of mint, game meat, rich currant and fresh earth. The minty flavors tend to dominate the flavors now and are a bit one-dimensional, but those who like mint will love it. Drink now through 2009. 450 cases made. (JL)" Best 2005-2009
