Reviews
2019 Syrah, Kimsey Vineyard

Wine Enthusiast  93 points ~ Review to be published online in late September and in the November print issue.

2018 Syrah, Kimsey Vineyard

Jeb Dunnuck  92 points ~ From a terrific site at the base of Ballard Canyon, the 2018 Syrah Kimsey Vineyard sports a dense purple hue as well as young, unevolved notes of bright black and blue fruits, ground pepper, violets, and hints of sappy green herbs. These all carry over to the palate, where the wine is medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated, and structured. It needs another 2-3 years of bottle age to come together, but it’s unquestionably an outstanding bottle of Syrah. Maturity after 2023. — Jeb Dunnuck

Wine Enthusiast  93 points Cellar Selection ~ There's an intense umami-laden nose to this bottling, offering dried meat, light pepper, iodine and dark-blackberry aromas. The palate is very firm in structure, setting up blackberry jam, acai and cracked pepper flavors to last for a long time. Drink 2022–2038. — Matt Kettman

Vinous  93 points ~ The 2018 Syrah Kimsey Vineyard is a dense, potent wine. Inky blue/black fruit, licorice, spice, new leather, espresso infuse the palate with quite a bit of textural depth. This rich, unctuous Syrah has a lot to offer. Drinking window 2023-2033. — Antonio Galloni
