Wine SpectatorDeceptively complex and nuanced, this gains depth and maintains persistence, pushing the blackberry, wild berry and boysenberry flavors on the long, engaging finish, ending with smoke and charcoal. Drink now through 2020.
Robert Parker, The Wine AdvocateReviewer, Antonio Galloni - Readers in search of a delicious Syrah that won’t break the bank should check out Rusack’s 2010 Syrah Ballard Canyon Estate. The 2010 literally bursts from the glass with layers of beautifully delineated fruit. Juicy dark cherries, flowers, mint and spices come alive in this energetic, focused Syrah. The 2010 impresses for its intensity and polished personality.
SyrahAlso known as Shiraz in Australia and South Africa, Syrah makes intense, deep wines with plenty of spice, fruit and alcohol. It thrives in warm climates, and is widely grown in Australia, California, and the Rhone region of France, where it makes Cote Rotie and Hermitage, and forms the backbone of Chateauneuf du Pape.

CaliforniaSince the famous Judgement of Paris in 1976 California wines have unquestionably ranked among the best in the world. From the Anderson Valley in the North through Temecula Valley in the South, California vineyards grow dozens of wine grape varietals that produce wines of many different styles. The California wine industry has steadily gained ground since the 1960s (the industry took a major hit following Prohibition), but its roots date back over 200 years. Major grape varietals include Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc. View all our items from California
