Editorial Reviews for Three Coins Syrah
A bit hot and very chocolaty some sweet roasty fruit, a bit of toasty oak and some candied floral tones add a bit of complexity. Light on the palate with some attractive raspberry fruit edged in chocolate and spice tones, really soft tannins give the wine some volume in the mouth and come to the fore on the backend which features some candied fruit with a touch of earth and wood spice on the finale. A nicely balanced, easygoing style of Syrah that is a bit simple but retains nice structure. 86pts
Bright and sweet red fruit aromas with a hint of spice. Reminds me of raspberry preserves. Loads of acidity hits immediately, and washes away into quite a long finish with blackberries.
The smell of sweet sweet red fruits and berries, a sweet mix of cherries and raspberries and pomegranates. Soft tannins, medium finish, smooth. Delicious.
This wine won silver medals at the 2008 and 2009 Jerry Mead's New World Wine Competition, and the 2008 National Women's Wine Competition. It also won bronze medals at the 2009 National Women's wine competition and the 2009 Finger Lakes Wine Competition.
From the Beverage Testing Institute World Wine Championships: 90 Points. Gold Medal. Garnet, violet color. Aromas of ripe mulberries and melted toffee have a hint of grilled red pepper and vanilla and follow through on a bright entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium body with tart apple skin, custard, and pomegranate notes. Finishes with a smooth, even nutshell-like tannin fade. A balanced, Old World styled syrah. (tasted on Jun-01-2009)

This wine won Silver Medals at the International National Women's Wine Competition, Jerry Meads New World International Wine Competition and the California State Fair.
Cinnamon and allspice on the nose, with some smokey and gamey meat-like touches, a little bit of acidity on the mouth with black pepper and underripe berries. Very thick on the palate, and the finish is a bit light and vegetative.
