$69.25 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($76.95 regular)
98 points Wine Advocate: "...a smokin', layered, sexy, voluptuous Syrah that does everything right... this beauty offers a sensational perfume of smoked meats, pepper, licorice, black olives and assorted ripe black fruits. Deep, layered and concentrated, yet always light on its feet and elegant, this fabulous Syrah has a terrific mid-palate, a core of sweet fruit and blockbuster length. It's a tour de force in the vintage and certainly one of the top wines."

$134.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($149.95)
98 points Wine Advocate: "A candidate for the wine of the vintage, the 2013 Syrah Royal City is as expansive, sexy and voluptuous as they get in the vintage, hands down. It's deep ruby/purple color is followed by incredible notes of wild herbs, lavender, gamey meats, olive paste and sweet dark berry fruits. Full-bodied, relatively forward and charming, it still packs a wealth of material and has building tannin, all suggesting it will drink nicely for 10-15 years."

$44.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($49.95 regular)
95-97 points Wine Advocate: "There's 300 cases of the potentially profound 2014 The Boy, which is mostly Grenache from the Powerline Vineyard in Walla Walla. Fermented with 100% whole clusters and aged in neutral oak, it offers sensational ripeness and depth in its meaty, olive, pepper, currant and kirsch scented bouquet. This gives way to a massive, concentrated and voluptuously textured Grenache that has a great mid-palate, ripe tannin and a finish that just won't quit."
K Vintners The Deal Syrah Sundance Vineyard Syrah 2013
$35.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($39.95 regular)
93 points Wine Spectator: "Broad and succulent, with a mineral edge to the tautly focused blackberry, blueberry. smoke and espresso flavors, lingering against fine tannins on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2023."
