Syrah Maximus Hillside Grown Estate 2010

Free Shipping, Solid Case
Robert Parker Wine Advocate 91 Points

From the center western hills of the Blackjack Ranch Estate Vineyard comes our annual Maximus Reserve Syrah. Forty degree slopes assure this fruit achieves the depth and complexity you’ve come to expect. Many don’t realize this, but greatness in winemaking is achieved from farming vines on the SIDE of a hill. Flat bottom land or hill tops are a different terroir. The much thinner soil of a hillside offers the opportunity to make the vine work hard to produce great fruit. Our “Sideways” wine, the very same as Miles and Jack enjoyed in the film. The Wine Advocate (Issue 226): “The 2010 Maximus offers plenty of currants, licorice, and darker fruits in its gamy medium to full bodied complex and Northern Rhone-like personality. I find plenty to like here. Enjoy through 2022”
