Description

"The 2014 Syrah Hampton Vineyard is another delicious Syrah...Plums, spice-box, dried herbs and vanilla oak all emerge from this hedonistic, sumptuous, forward beauty that’s going to be a total charmer over the coming 4-6 years." ~ Jeb Dunnuck

"A dark core of black plum, blueberry and violet marks the nose of this single-vineyard bottling. The palate showcases purple fruit and floral notes, with concentrated black plum skin and more violet leading the way." ~ Wine Enthusiast 

"Super-ripe black fruit, tobacco, dark spice and leather are pushed forward in the 2014 Syrah Hampton Vineyard. Like all of these wines, the Hampton shows the riper, more voluptuous, fruit-driven side of Syrah." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
