92 points "Fragrant, appealing scents of vanilla, ripe blackberry and black cherry, with sour cherry and dark chocolate notes emerging with air. Bold and powerful on the palate, this take-no-prisoners Syrah delivers copious, ultraripe blackberry-raspberry fruit tinged with dried lavender, medium-full, supple tannins and fine acid balance, yet in the close the wine picks up even more red fruit and caresses the palate as the flavor impressions slowly fade into memory.

"Our 2004 Syrah is a deep, luscious wine with distinct notes of plum and mocha. Grown in the well-drained volcanic soils of the legendary Monte Rosso Vineyard, this wine is very approachable now and will age well for several years. 198 cases made of Oberschulte Syrah "Monte Rosso Vineyard" Sonoma Valley 2004. Very little Syrah is planted on "Monte Rosso" and Mark Oberschulte would know: his day job is vineyard manager there. " Best 2007-2012
