A treat right now but has an easy 8+ years in it. Smooth and balanced for how young it is. Dark, fruity with a nice mineral tone. Great finish. Read more

Dark fruit and earth on this funky wine with hints of tar and leather. Fruit is very bright and well developed, with a hint of medicine, drying tannins, and dark chocolate.

Splendid. I have to say that this year's line of Donelan Syrahs are extremely versatile and age worthy. I cannot say enough good things about the direction that Donelan is taking with their Syrahs.

dusty delicious tannins. This is a rich, high heat flavor bomb that tastes like a 2000 Bordeaux. I paired this with homemade beef ravioli. outstanding.

I loved this wine! These wines have the provenance of great age-ability and I was expecting it to be a bit tight, it was simply delicious - try it if you are seeking that wow factor that's more indicative of the refined elegant wines of the Rhone Valley.

The 2008 Donelan Syrah Walker Vine Hill (100% Syrah, 55% whole clusters) possesses slightly lower alcohol (15.6% versus 15.9% in 2007). It represents a hypothetical Euro/California hybrid blend. More concentrated than the 2007, the inky/purple-hued, ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from California in USA. 2008 Donelan Syrah Walker Vine Hill Vineyard 750ml
