Wine AdvocateAnother wine from McPrice that needs short-term cellaring, the 2012 Syrah les Galets Vineyard (100% Syrah aged 22 months in barrel) exhibits lots of black fruits, liquid rock (this cuvee is always the most mineral-driven of all of McPrice's wines), smoked earth and ground pepper. Full-bodied, tannic and structured, give it at least 2-3 years in the cellar.

Wine SpectatorDense and rather firm, with some brooding power at the core. Floral blueberry aromas offer a whiff of bacon while the flavors reveal black raspberry, licorice and pepper notes. The tannins are ripe but have grip. Best from 2018 through 2022. 240 cases made.
