Tasting Notes

Very deep garnet-purple, the 2015 IX Syrah Estate opens with intense crushed black cherries, black plums and mulberries with underlying black pepper, peppered salami, violets and chocolate box plus a lovely star anise and sandalwood waft. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and wonderfully soft and sexy, it gives tons of perfumed black fruit and spice cake layers, finishing very long. 2018-2038

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate (233), October 2017

The 2015 Syrah is a total knock-out. Super-ripe red cherry, plum, rose petal and mint are some of the notes that race out of the glass, but here, too, it is the wine's stunning textural richness that stands out most. Full-throttle and intense in every dimension, the 2015 captivates all the senses with its magnificent, towering beauty. I would prefer to cellar the 2015 for at least a few years, but even today, in its primary stage, the 2015 is phenomenal. 2022-2035

Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, March 2018

The 2015 Syrah IX Estate is reminiscent of a Hermitage from the likes of Michel Chapoutier. Cured meats, blackberries, cracked pepper, and spring flower notes all emerge from this layered, elegant, gorgeously pure Syrah that has integrated acidity, perfect balance, and a great, great finish. It needs 2-3 years of cellaring and will keep for 15+. 2021-2036
