    Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

    These two distinctive efforts include the 2008 Syrah Il Padrino Bien Nacido Vineyard, which comes from the Estrella clone. Fully destemmed and aged in 100% new French oak, it is a beautifully made, full-bodied, inky/purple-colored wine exhibiting notes of graphite, creme de cassis, blackberries, minerals, and spice box with just a hint of oak in the background. It offers layer upon layer of fruit as well as a powerful, rich, yet elegant style. Drink this beauty over the next decade or more.

    Winery Notes

    Four years into a revolutionary viticulture under the brilliant care of Chris Hammell, vineyard manager, and his dedicated crew, my small hillside parcel produced outstanding grapes. This wine was vinified in 100% new French oak of the highest quality. This syrah was co-fermented with 5% viognier. This is a classic wine. It possesses violet flowers, black olive tapenade and church incense on the nose, with an intricate tone of blackberries. It is mid- to full-bodied with good structure and refreshing acidity that counterbalances the ripeness. It possesses a long finish and silky texture within a firm, youthful frame. It is a very expressive wine, reaching for profoundness, and will drink well soon but also improve in the cellar for 10 years plus. Enjoy. Two barrels made. 100% new French oak.
