2009 Donelan Syrah Richards Family Vineyard Sonoma Valley Sonoma California USA 3000ml
100 Points Jeb Dunnuck!
"A wine I pulled from my cellar (I rated it 98 points on release), the 2009 Syrah Richard’s Family Vineyard is unquestionably one of the greatest Syrahs I’ve ever tasted - from anywhere. Still youthfully purple in color, it offers a layered, nuanced bouquet that develops with time in the glass; ripe black fruits, dried flowers, cured meats, lavender and pepper and flow to a seamless, concentrated, perfectly balanced Syrah that has sweet tannin, a great mid-palate and a finish that won’t quit. This is an utter tour de force in cool climate Syrah from one of California’s best. Bravo!" Jeb Dunnuck
