The 2005 Syrah En Cerise features garrigue notes, mineral, meat, game, and blueberry. This brooding effort is dense, opulent, and powerful. Give it 5-7 years of cellaring and drink it through 2025.

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Refined, offering a gorgeous mouthful of raspberry, strawberry and tea leaf flavors that find a deft balance as they soar through the long, vivid finish. This is a Syrah that shows restraint without losing a whit of its fruit character, as the tannins submerge themselves in the finish. (HS) Inner quote mark (6/2008)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good deep red. Aromas of wild raspberry, woodsmoke, minerals, cocoa powder and cumin. Wonderfully sweet and concentrated, with a saline note complementing the black raspberry fruit. Not quite as long or aromatic as the Cailloux wine today but this needs time. (ST) Inner quote mark (11/2008)
