Description

“Black cherry, plum, mocha, chocolate, grilled herbs and licorice are fused together...A dollop of whole cluster Viognier adds aromatic lift, but the Rodney's is above all else built in a serious core of ripe, voluptuous fruit...picked in October, which seems quite late by the standards of the last two vintages.” ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"Made in a ripe, decadent style, the 2013 Syrah Rodney’s Vineyard gives up lots of blackberry, blueberry, barbecue smoke, and pepper. Incorporating 3% Viognier and aged 20 months in 43% new French oak, this beauty has some baby fat to shed, but should have a decade of overall longevity." ~ Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
