Winemaker's Notes:

[95 pts an Editors' Choice and the #1 Wine of 2008 in the Wine Enthusiast] An awesome syrah that proves that while size isn't everything it does matter. A major league wine brilliantly paced with currant black cherry licorice and pepper flavors whose power is hard to exaggerate. For all that the wine never loses its balance and sense of proportion. So good now you won't be able to keep your hands offit but it should hold for six years. [ 91 pts Robert Parker] The 2006 Syrah Phoenix Ranch exhibits ripe blackberry and notes of bacon fat intermixed with some pepper tar and earth. The wine has terrific intensity medium to full body beautiful density and a fleshy full-bodied mouthfeel. It should drink well for at least 7-8 years.
