94 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2017 Syrah Purisima Mountain Vineyard is positively gorgeous. Ample, expressive and nuanced, the 2017 exudes class. Inky blue/purplish fruit, lavender, menthol, licorice, blood orange, rose petal and mint all grow as this beautifully layered, impeccable Syrah opens up in the glass. The 2017 was done with fully destemmed fruit, and yet it exudes tremendous aromatic intensity. What a beautiful, beautiful wine it is. Drink: 2020-2037. (Sep 2019)"

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%."
