"96 out of 100...The 2017 Syrah La Côte Rousse was made from co-fermenting Syrah with Viognier to help lift the nose and add to the structure of the wine. Medium to full-bodied, it boasts beautiful floral notes and a dusty finesse of Red Mountain with a powerful mineral-driven kick that lingers on the focused palate. The La Côte Rousse is finessed and delivers expressive, elegant tart blackberry fruit and soft oak spices, followed by a lingering finish with soft black pepper tones and a rustic, dusty earth essence. Only 450 cases were made." - Anthony Mueller, Wine Advocate

"95+ out of 100...Moving to the top Syrahs, the 2017 Syrah La Cote Rousse is always 100% Red Mountain fruit (92% from the Ciel du Cheval vineyard) and saw 30% stems and 13 months in French oak. Fabulous notes of bloody blueberries, lavender, dried herbs, and ground pepper as well as tons of minerality emerge from this full-bodied, concentrated, masculine Syrah. Compared to the La Serenne, this cuvée also shows a more savory, mineral, structured profile and benefits from short-term cellaring. It’s going to keep for over a decade." - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com
