Jon Thorsen of The Reverse Wine Snob reviewed our 2007 and 2008 Syrah Tous les Jours last week. The 2007 earned a ‘Buy’ ranking, and the 2008 earned a ‘Bulk Buy’ ranking, as well as the #1 position on September’s Top Ten List!
Many thanks to all of our wonderful wine tasters who visited Andrew Murray Vineyards this weekend…we loved seeing you!
Take a look at Steve McIntosh’s review of three of our single-vineyard Syrahs – plucky, spirited writing as always! On the Syrah Terra Bella Vineyard, “As close to a 5 star wine as we’ve ever reviewed.” Click here to read the complete review on winethropology.com
Here’s an excerpt:
“A kitchen sink blend of Grenache Noir, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc, it’s a spice box extravaganza that commands attention. Though splashing a spectrum of flavors across the palate like a brightly lit magenta-to-indigo rainbow, first impressions are freshness, focus, and balance. Surprisingly lively for a 5 year old wine. Clearly well made – and dangerously accessible. Deal.” Read the whole review here.
