96 pts. Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate: October, 2005
Notions of melted tar, blackberries, liquid minerals, and charcoal emerge from the inky/purple-colored 2003 Syrah Hickinbotham Vineyard. Revealing a meaty richness along with great concentration, length, purity, and definition, it is a tour de force in winemaking. This amazing Syrah should age effortlessly for two decades.
93 pts. Wine Spectator: April 30, 2005
Ripe in flavor, with a tangy balance to the plum and berry flavors, mingling with touches of pepper and citrus as the finish persists impressively. Best from 2008 through 2018.
