93 points "The 2011 Syrah Timbervine bursts from the glass with blue and black fruits, smoke, tobacco, licorice, incense, savory herbs and new leather. The 2011 is quite rich, layered voluptuous, but it also has plenty of varietal character. Firm tannins and a very classic sense of structure should allow the 2011 to age gracefully for a number of years. In 2011, the Timbervine stands out for its stunning balance. I can’t wait to taste this from bottle. (93-95)." Best 2014-2024

92 points "(raised in puncheons, 30% new oak): Inky purple. Sexy, floral-accented aromas and flavors of dark berry liqueur, cola and Indian spices. Juicy, penetrating and pure, with a suave blend of richness and verve. Zesty acidity provides lift and finishing cut while silky tannins help shape the exuberant fruit. 10% whole clusters were used this vintage, Sussman told me. (92-93)."
