94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2019 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard Block 11D1 comes from Clones 1 and 2 of Syrah and is co-fermented with 6% Roussanne. As with the Pinot Noirs, the Syrahs see between 35% and 45% stems and the aging is in 40% new French oak. This inky colored Syrah offers up a rich, iron-laced, full-bodied style as well as rocking dark fruits, peppery herbs, and meaty goodness. It's rich and mouth-filling, with ripe tannins and a great finish. This is another superb, fruit-driven, textured, yet still classic Syrah from winemaker Joey Tensley that will drink well for 5-7 years, if not longer. Drink: 2021-2028. (4/30/21)"

Producer notes: "With the power of a semi-truck, this wine packs a punch with layers of spice and fruit, deep aromatics and intense complexity. Chocolate-covered acai berries, tanned leather, olive brine and dark roast coffee beans are amongst the unique flavors that fill the palate. The dense concentration and structure of this wine will hold up to any extreme meal – dark-crusted Prime Rib over mesquite wood would be perfection. 344 cases produced. Alcohol 15.7%."
