Reviews & Scores

The 2014 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard X Block has a lot of everything. Powerful, dense and explosive, it offers superb depth and intensity in every dimension. A rich, full-throttle Syrah, the X Block is going to need a lot of time to settle down, but it is magnificent, even at this very early stage.
96 points, Antonio Galloni


This is the first year for this wine. Historically the fruit from this block has gone to Bonny Doon and Qupè. They were the ones who convinced the Miller Family to graft over Riesling to Syrah. The rest is history. I did not taste the wine, but I would expect it to be quite special.
