Wine AdvocateThe soft, supple, velvety-textured 2005 Syrah reveals notes of blackberries, bacon fat, camphor, pepper, and black olives. This fruit forward beauty is ideal for drinking over the next 7-8 years.

Wine SpectatorDistinct for its wide range of flavors, with a mix of earthy mineral, pebble, leather and beefy, peppery berry notes. The earthiness provides a nice baseline, adding herb, sage and mineral notes. Drink now through 2012. 656 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastPride's '05 Syrah is higher in alcohol than the past few vintages, and not to the wine's benefit. The wine tastes sweeter, hotter and mushier, despite the very ripe blackberry, raspberry, cherry and chocolate flavors. Drink now.
