A bit hot on the nose but with huge smoked meat, hickory nut, and boysenberry and pomegranate syrup fruit aromas that have a peachy edge to them. This is gently spicy with a light mineral/mint/cinnamon tone on the nose and a light veneer of wood spice. Big and tart on entry with lots of acid lending this a wild cherry, sour wild berry fruit tone. There's a bit of medicinal detail on the mid-palate with very soft tannins that are completely concealed by the candied red fruits. This is really packed with fresh fruits in a very taut style that presents as fairly lean at the moment. Wonderfully well balanced and deceptively smooth and polished. With some time in the cellar this should continue to open and reveal more density in a rather velvetty style. Long today with a bit of spice and heat on the finish as well as an attractive, dry mouthwatering mineral finale. 91pts

Dense and chewy, showing exotic earth, tar, wild berry and pebble flavors that are intense and concentrated, still echoing hints of fermentation aromas. Ends with full-bodied, chewy tannins. Best from 2010 through 2016. 647 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Syrah wine from California in USA. 2007 Red Car Tomorrowland Syrah 750ml

The 2006 Boxcar syrah is a stellar wine at a smashing price. Big yet balanced, this syrah captivates with tastes of wild blackberries, smoked bacon, white pepper and iodine. Its heady and aromatic nose imbues lilac, pine, and ocean fog. It feels like satin in the mouth and finishes seamlessly. Delicious.

90 Points - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate The Fight Round 3 Continues... This wine reveals more licorice, underbrush and pepper notes along with copious qualities of blackberries and cassis. It is more refined and elegant with additional finesse as well as balance over Red Car's Twenty-Two Syrah.
