93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the Syrah releases, the 2017 Syrah Purisima Mountain Vineyard was mostly destemmed (10% stems) and aged 17 months in a mix of stainless steel and oak. Its deep ruby color is followed by a rocking bouquet of blackberries, wild strawberries, olive tapenade, lavender, and spring flowers. Medium to full-bodied, silky, polished, and elegant, it has a terrific mix of freshness and richness, ultra-fine tannins, and a great finish. It's a terrific value.(10/31/19)"
90 points Erin Brooks (Wine Advocate): "Medium ruby-purple, the 2017 Syrah Purisima Mountain Vineyard features baked black cherries, wild blackberries, black raspberries, turned earth, licorice, chocolate and hints of nutmeg and herbs. Medium to full-bodied, it's very spicy with fine, grainy tannins and juicy freshness, finishing long. A nicely restrained and balanced style of Syrah. Drink: 2019-2028. (Sep 2019)"
Producer notes: "100% Syrah. Dark chocolate, plum, blackberry, vanilla, black pepper, grilled meats, and game are hallmarks of Purisima Mountain Syrah. 1,400 cases produced. Drink: 2019-2031. Alcohol 14.8%."
