Press Reviews

Antonio Galloni’s Vinous

“The 2011 Syrah Solomon Hills Special Bottling wafts from the glass with sweet tobacco, pine, cedar, mint and exotic spices. The flavors are wonderfully lifted and gracious throughout. A Syrah built on finesse and elegance rather than sheer power, the 2011 delivers the goods. The 2011 was made from fully destemmed fruit and aged in neutral oak. ” – AG 96 Points

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“There are onlytwo barrels of the 2011 Syrah Solomon Hills Special Bottling to go around, and this blend of 100% Syrah spent 18 months all in older oak. Reminding me of a classy Saint Joseph, it exhibits pretty violets, white pepper, bacon fat and hints of crushed rock to go with a medium-bodied, lively, pure and elegant style on the palate. As with all of Adams 2011s, it has vibrant acidity and an energetic feel. ” – JD 92 Points
