Tasting Notes:
rated: August 16, 2016 , Jeb Dunnuck
98 points "The 2012 Syrah Seymour's Vineyard comes from a tiny, windswept parcel at the top of John's estate. Its inky black color is followed by sensational notes of black olives, smoked earth, charcoal and perfectly ripe dark fruits. Deep, rich and concentrated, it's one of the more focused, pretty examples of this cuvee out there. Nevertheless, it has plenty of tannin and will keep for two decades in the cellar." Best 2018-2038

96 points "Lurid purple. A highly complex bouquet evokes blueberry and cherry preserves, incense and smoky Indian spices, and an exotic nectarine quality develops with air. Completely stains the palate with sappy, deeply concentrated black and blue fruit liqueur and floral pastille flavors complemented by suave floral and allspice notes. Shows outstanding energy and clarity on the remarkably long, floral-dominated finish, which is framed by smooth, fine-grained tannins." Best 2020-2028
