Vinous 2023    

Top 100 Wines of 2023 – 2021 Syrah Watch Hill Vineyard. 
Jeb Dunnuck 2023    

"Styllistically, the wines are rich and deep, but never overdone. I always leave this tasting wishing there was more wines!" 
Vinous, September 2023    

“The Best Syrah to Buy Right Now!”   Food & Wine Magazine, June 2021

I only tasted a handful of wines with Andrew Murray as my visit coincided with bottling, but there is certainly plenty to like in these new releases. These wines combine varietal and site expression in a forward, juicy style that requires minimal cellaring.
“Santa Barbara” by Antonio Galloni

“Andrew Murray turned out a striking set of 2018s that shows just how compelling this vintage is, especially for Rhone-variety wines. This is an impressive range of wines that offer tremendous pleasure.”
“Santa Barbara” by Antonio Galloni

“Consistently outstanding wines emerge from Andrew Murray, ... most being estate vineyards. Almost all terrific values, Murray's wines generally show fresh, elegant characters while still holding true to California ripe, sunny fruit.”
“The 2018s from Santa Barbara County” by Jeb Dunnuck

“This set of new releases from Andrew Murray Vineyards is full of fabulous choices at all price points.”
Antonio Galloni for The Wine Advocate

“I tasted fewer wines from Andrew Murray this year which is partly a reflection of Murray’s move to focus his range... the Syrahs in particular – deliver compelling quality and value, a balance that is frankly commendable in today’s market.”
“Santa Barbara: The Thrill of Discovery” by Antonio Galloni

“This set of wines from Andrew Murray is remarkable for its breadth of quality and sheer value.” 
Antonio Galloni for The Wine Advocate

“Andrew Murray Vineyards is one of the shining stars in the Santa Barbara firmament. Extremely low yields…and a dedication to hillside vineyards, ripe fruit, and non-interventionalistic wine-making have combined to propel this estate to the top echelon of the Rhone Ranger hierarchy. Production is small,…but these wines are well-worth seeking out.”
Robert Parker for The Wine Advocate
