2017 SYRAH WATCH HILL VYD MAGNUM
Critical Reviews for this stunning Syrah
Vinous 95 Points
Another highlight in this range, the 2017 Syrah Watch Hill Vineyard is dense, powerful and super-expressive. Dark cherry, plum, flowers, mint and sweet spice add striking nuance. In the glass, the 2017 is dense, sumptuous and wonderfully forward, with exceptional balance and tons of class. This is a decidedly fruity, succulent style. It will be interesting to see if even more complexity develops over time. Even today, though, the 2017 is immensely delicious.

This cuvée is a perennial superstar in the lineup, and the 2017 Syrah Watch Hill Vineyard (there's 5% Viognier) doesn’t disappoint. Juicy blackberries, red plums, ground pepper, violets, and hints of game all flow to a medium to full-bodied, pure, balanced Syrah that has a wonderful sense of purity and elegance while still packing plenty of fruit.
