A grown wine showing the vineyard and vintage in such a harmonious way. Purple fruit, mint, black olive and forest floor rest on a foundation of rock. Rich earth, full and compelling perfection.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 95 Points - Opening with an opulent frame displaying the entire spectrum of fruits from red to blue, the 2017 Syrah Cattle King offers a juicy density and aromas of crème de cassis, boysenberry, black pepper and chocolate. Full-bodied, the boisterous profile seems to go on forever with elements of dark cherry, blackberry and boysenberry essence tied to fine-grained tannins that weigh on the palate with a generous dollop of oak spices. The Cattle King shows power and finesse in a heavyweight frame and ends with a long, bold and chocolaty finish. This is delicious juice.
