(2011 Vintage) "The Pisoni family's efforts with Syrah are less well known than a certain P grape, especially in the Garys' vineyard, but it might be what they do best. Intense, savory and balancing deep blue fruit with violets, fine-ground pepper, cardamom and a hint of savory wood, with impressively refined tannins to bolster the texture. A benchmark for California Syrah."- Top 100 wines of 2013
95 points, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate August 2009 The outrageously sumptuous, complex 2007 Pinot Noir Garys’ Vineyard is a compelling example of Pinot Noir from the Santa Lucia Highlands. Ten to twelve percent whole clusters were used during fermentation, and the wine was aged in 50% new oak. Sumptuous aromas of kirsch, black raspberries, fresh mushrooms, and forest floor are very Burgundian as well as intense. In the mouth, the wine is full and beautifully concentrated with silky tannins and a long finish. Drink this sensational Pinot over the next 5-8+ years.
