The 2011 Rhys Syrah from the Skyline Vineyard tips the scales at a robust 13.5 percent alcohol, which is pretty impressive for the cool 2011 growing season. The wine is absolutely stunning, soaring from the glass in a vibrant blend of black raspberries, smoked meats, a touch of black olive, black pepper, stony soil tones, dark chocolate, a discrete framing of spicy new wood and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and beautifully complex, with a superb core of fruit, ripe tannins, tangy acids and outstanding length and grip on the focused and very classy finish. This is very Hermitage-like and stylistically harkens back to the great old days at Chave. (Drink between 2019-2040)

Deep ruby. Heady, exotically perfumed scents of dark berry liqueur, Asian spices, potpourri and olive, with a mineral quality adding lift. Sappy cherry-cola and black raspberry flavors pick up a refreshingly bitter edge with air and show excellent clarity and power. Takes a turn to red fruit on the spicy, persistent finish, which leaves a sexy floral note behind. This wine was made with two-thirds whole clusters.

A.Galloni, 2014
Iron, red stone fruits, mint, leather and game meld together in the 2011 Syrah Skyline Vineyard. A powerful, intense Syrah with distinctly ferrous overtones, the 2011 Skyline boasts terrific balance and plenty of personality, especially within the context of the year. The 2011 was done entirely in neutral oak with 100% whole clusters. Sadly, 2012 will be the last vintage of Syrah in the Skyline Vineyard, as the plants have been ripped out in favor of Pinot Noir. (Drink between 2014-2021)
