Dark and a bit oaky at first pass with plenty of toasty hickory nut notes that fade into a more balanced array of inky, bloody, salted meat and blue fruit notes. This is slow to open in the mouth, starting off the a bit of a dense, black hole feel. The acid seems to be on the outside of the fruit and the tannins well buried. There’s a nice overlay of oak as well but this slowly broadens in the mouth with a fine, juicy blackberry core of fruit and gentle nutella chcoc/nut tones adding some complexity. This exhibits fine balance. Really exhibits lovely purity and while it’s a bit tannic today the finish exhibits nice fruity aromatics that bode well for the future. Lacks a bit of complexity at this stage but the finish gets long and longer showing brilliant fresh yet not sweet berry fruit. 92pts

Gorgeous wine that is still young and likely to get better. Silky and rich. This same vineyard got a 94 wine spectator for their 2005 bottle so I'd suggest buying some at least until WS rates this.

Opaque dark plum hue, rich and earthy aromas of black fruits and forest floor; ripe black plum, black cherry and blueberry notes on the palate with generous extraction dancing with a hint of damp earth and game smoke.

A lot of wine--more so than the excellent value SC. Rich, rich plummy aromas and flavors with hints of cassis, spice, and coffee. Long finish.

The 2009 Syrah Garys' is a big wine packed with black fruit, violets and spices. This is a decidedly explosive, opulent and structured Syrah that needs another year or two for the tannins to start settling down. Hints of smoke, game, and tar add furt...

More whole clusters/stems (40%) are used in the fermentation of the 2007 Syrah Garys' Vineyard. This has given the wine more structure as well as an earthy, peppery, forest floor-like component to accompany the blackberry liqueur, incense, and floral... Robert Parker.
