SKU C0164


Blackberry pie, creosote, summer fruit compote, wood-smoke, fresh espresso and pepper lurk in the thick aromas of this wine. In the mouth supple but intense fruits, spices and crushed stone flavors lead into a thick mid palate of sweet black & blue fruit pie. The finish is quite long and extended by ripe tannins that give this monstrous Syrah a pleasingly clean finish of salty extract.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Syrah Cuvee Christine, which is from the Sonoma side of Spring Mountain, exhibits a blackish/blue color and a gorgeous cool-climate Syrah nose of tapenade, creosote, charcoal, espresso, and ground pepper. With as much blackberry fruit as one would like, it is inky bluish purple in color, with sensational ripeness, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and tremendous extract in a massive style. Nevertheless, the wine is harmonious and velvety-textured.

Robert Parker, December 2007
