    Opened for the Virtual Cali Syrah tasting weekend on ebob. Decanted 1 hour. Initially somewhat primary. Super dark color. Purple edges. amazing pure saturated blackberry and blueberry. Beautiful floral notes.This will get better and better...1 and 3/4 hours later:This nose is just exploding with black fruit. An incredible lush tannin and acid level showcases the blackberries, tar, white pepper, bacon fat. A super long finish . Wow. Now I am really glad I've got 10 more...and will seek more yet. This is an elegant classy pure pretty Syrah. Well worth the $40 price tagNote to self: Glad I followed my own advice and got more.

    This is a more 'complete' wine when compared to the 2004. The color is deep and dark, almost blue/purple on the edges. The nose is blueberry, blackberry, camphor, and more. On the palate there was the sexiness spoken of, as well as a lushnessI I don't not usually assosiate with Syrah. A beautiful deep fruited Syrah that will just get better in the next few years. The tannin and acid level are spot on. A super long finish completes the package. Note to self: get more...quickly.

    With the new mailer on my doorstep I just could not resist trying this.The color is inky garnet, bulls blood comes to mind. The nose shows a fragrant assortment dark fruits and an underlying white pepper component that I like a lot. The palate has it all and then some; still warm blueberry pie, dark boysenberry, dark blackberries, vanilla, earth, white pepper, wild flowers and some great smooth spiciness. It is a smorgasbord of flavors. The tannins are nicely laid out all in a row, and the acid is present but compliments the whole package. The finish is a minute plus! The fruit bowl of persistence. Sounds like a Dali painting. Artwork non-the-less. Very different than the Garys Vnyd. Tamer and more refined. WOW

    The 2009 Syrah Susan's Hill, from a parcel within Pisoni, sees an extended maceration that lasts 25-30 days. It is a deep, inky wine bursting with dark fruit, spices, licorice and leather. It has more than enough inner sweetness, density and sheer op... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from California in USA. 2009 Lucia Syrah Susans Hill 750ml

    The 2006 Syrah Susan's Hill. While similar to its sibling, it displays more complex aromas, with a stronger floral component, and meatiness and pepper. It boasts an amazing palate impression, full body, and a multidimensional, skyscraper-like feel in... Robert Parker. A Syrah wine from California in USA. 2006 Lucia Syrah Susan's Hill 750ml
