"Our wines are painstakingly hand-crafted to be pure examples of the varietals and site from which they are made. The extraordinary character of our wines is possible, in part, thanks to the prodigious terroir of our estate vineyards on the steep upper slopes of Red Mountain. The low vigor, diverse soil composition, and varied aspects and elevations support the genesis of compelling fruit, resulting in exceptional wines that are powerful without being overbearing, elegant without being frail, and rich without being clumsy." —winemaker
"Coming all from the estate Force Majeure Vineyard, the 2011 Collaboration Series Syrah displays the earthy, savory side to the variety with plenty of tobacco leaf, underbrush, black pepper, currants and damp earth on the nose. A rich, full-bodied effort that defies the age-old, old-vine marketing you often hear (it’s from fourth leaf vines), it is beautifully concentrated and rich through the mid-palate, has a fleshy, weighty texture and a great finish. I can’t wait to taste it from bottle, but I suspect it will be reasonably approachable on release and have a 12-15 years of prime drinking. Drink now-2026." —Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate

"Sleek and harmonious, weaving currant and plum fruit with touches of black pepper and lime on an open texture. A few gritty tannins allow the finish to expand and persist. Drink now through 2021. 220 cases made." —Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator

"Healthy bright ruby. Attractive high-toned lift to the aromas of blackberry, blueberry, licorice and violet pastille. Juicy, energetic and youthfully tight, with dark berry and licorice flavors showing an almost citric edge. A lightly peppery, herbal quality keeps the finish quite bound up today. An awkward showing today and obviously in need of patience." —Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media
