J. Gilman, 2014
The 2011 Horseshoe Vineyard Syrah is a beautifully transparent and refined wine, offering up striking purity with its 12.9 percent alcohol format. The bouquet offers up a precise and complex constellation of cassis, black raspberries, black olive, fresh herb tones, a superb base of dark soil, grilled meats, chocolate and a bit of cedary wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very soil-driven, with superb mid-palate intensity, tangy acids, moderate tannins and excellent focus and grip on the long, pure and very well-balanced finish. This is a tour de force example of Santa Cruz Mountain syrah. (Drink between 2019-2040)

Inky ruby. Heady cherry compote, blackberry, olive and cola scents are sharpened by cracked pepper and minerals. Stains the palate with sweet dark fruit and floral pastille flavors, showing uncommon density and power for the vintage while remaining fresh and energetic. Bitter cherry and spicecake qualities carry through the finish, which is firmed by dusty, building tannins and juicy acidity.

A.Galloni, 2014
The 2011 Syrah Horseshoe Vineyard is delicate and understated in the glass, with less of the mid-palate depth of the best years. Plum, licorice, menthol and floral notes emerge over time, but the Horseshoe possesses only moderate concentration, something that is especially evident on the finish. The long, cool growing season was especially challenging for Syrah. This fruit was picked into November. No amount of skilled farming and winemaking can fully compensate for the whims of Mother Nature. (Drink between 2014-2019)
