Brennon Leighton, director of winemaking at K Vintners and Charles Smith wineries, makes a tiny amount of Syrah under his own label and damn are we glad he does. A real head-turner that's more finesse than force, everything is in the right place with this wine. -- M&A
94 points Wine Advocate: "Gamey, spicy and complex, with gorgeous crème de cassis fruit and a touch of graphite, this beauty is full-bodied, layered and elegant, with ripe tannin, a stacked mid-palate and a great finish. This is a serious wine that will benefit from short-term cellaring and drink well through 2028."
93 points Wine Spectator: "Focused, polished and intense, centered on blackberry and red plum flavors, with hints of pepper and caramel as the finish extends. Best from 2017 through 2022. 137 cases made."
