Wine Advocate Review
Rated 95
Blackberries, crushed rocks, peppery herbs, violets and hints of salty minerality all emerge from the concentrated, full-bodied, beautifully layered 2013 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard. Aged 22 months in 24% new oak, this sensational Syrah has serious richness, yet never seems heavy, has building, fine tannin and a rocking finish. Hats off to this team for another terrific effort. Drink now-2026.

VinoUS Media Review
Rated 95
The 2013 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard is one of the most polished and understated of these wines. Inky blue and purplish fruit, lavender, spice, mint and licorice are all laced together. Despite its considerable flavor intensity, the Bien Nacido is light on its feet, gracious and super-expressive. (Antonio Galloni)

Wine Enthusiast Review

CELLAR SELECTION

This wine is extremely well integrated and approachable on the nose, with crushed pepper notes spicing up the elegant black currant and plum aromas. Thyme, fennel pollen and licorice notes sing throughout the palate's dark but restrained black fruit, all held together by tarry structure. Drink 2018-2023.

Wine Spectator Review
Rated 91
Precise but expressive, with distinctive blueberry and crushed stone aromas and trim yet layered flavors of blackberry, grilled anise and white pepper. Drink now through 2027.

Wine Tasting Notes
In this vintage the Bien Nacido Vineyard gave us exceptional fruit. Moderate, consistent temperatures provided optimal ripeness resulting in a wine with darkness, minerality, and elegance reminiscent of a fine Côte-Rôtie Syrah. Balanced acidity makes it exciting on the pallet. Plums and dark fruit integrate with Northern Rhône Syrah characteristics of cassis, tar, white pepper and black licorice. A beautiful wine that should age magnificently.
