Buy Amavi Cellars Syrah
Wine Spectator 92 points - The 2008 Syrah (100%) was aged in 19% new French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it sports an inviting nose of underbrush, brier, lavender, blueberry, and cranberry. On the palate meat and spice notes emerge, especially pepper along with a touch of earthy minerals. This savory Syrah can be approached now but will continue to add nuance with another 1-2 years of cellaring. ”

Wine Enthusiast 91 points - Firm in texture, but brimming with dark currant and boysenberry flavors under a layer of licorice and pepper, pushing through the fine tannins to glow brightly on the rich finish. Best from 2012 through 2016. 1,314 cases made. –HS

Wine Advocate 89 points - Beautifully fragrant, with intense, polished berry and currant fruit flavors, more than a light sniff of fresh mushroom and lovely herbs. This is a truly remarkable effort, elegant and complex. There are nuances of blood, and garrigue, and just the right amount of whole cluster (about 20%) giving definition and texture through the finish. P.G.
