Intensely aromatic and floral, with plenty of wood spice, green anise seed and black fruit. Violets, earth and cured meat are rich and ripe with fine depth. This has savory, fresh blackberry fruit, spicy, sappy herb notes on the back end, palate-staining tenacity of fruit, with fine length, fine balance, and ripe tannins. This finishes with uprising brightness of flavor, let's see what three years brings. 92pts

Hard on the nose with complex layered aromas of violet pastille, dried beef, pressed flowers and white pepper. Nicely ripe in the mouth with a really precise feel. This is quite perfumed in the mouth and, while the texture is pleasantly rigid, the fruit is quite expressive and elegant. Clean and fresh with red plums, pepper and spice flavors on the mid-palate that extend through the moderately long finish. 91pts

Very deep garnet-purple in color the 2009 Gimblett Gravels "Le Sol" Syrah gives ripe blackberry blueberry and Chinese five spice aromas with pinches of black pepper and anise. Medium-full bodied ripe and richly fruited on the palate it s got a solid backbone of firm grainy tannins and crisp acid finishing long. Approachable now it should drink best 2012 through 2017+. 92+ -Lisa Perrotti-Brown Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

What a gorgeous Syrah this is. New Zealand's finest? Quite possibly. It is taciturn at first, so I give it an hour in the decanter and boy, does it repay you. Pure blackcurrant, cassis and boysenberry on the nose that seems to have sculpted by winema... Neal Martins Wine Journal.
