2014 Thompson Vineyard Syrah (92-94 Vinous, 93-96 Wine Advocate)
This is our 17th vintage of Thompson Syrah, and it seems the fruit from this vineyard just keeps getting better. Planted in 1990 to the renowned Estrella clone, Thompson continually produces low yields and exquisite fruit. Pure, subtle, and intricately layered, this year’s Thompson boasts flavors of blackberries, blueberries, and minerals and strikes a beautiful balance between depth and freshness. This wine is always an excellent choice for aging and will easily last out the next 12 years.
