The fruit-forward 2005 Syrah Lauterbach is 100% Syrah with a dark ruby/purple color, beautiful density and ripeness, and sweet tannins in a velvety, up-front style. Some black raspberry as well as hints of lard and espresso roast are intermingled with the red and black fruits in this wine, which has a beautiful medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and a long finish. Drink it over the next 5-6 years. – Robert M. Parker, Jr. – 28-12-2007

Inky violet. Lush and inviting, with ripe boysenberry and blackberry aromas and a bright mineral overlay. Broad and fleshy, with deep dark fruit flavors, soft tannins and a suggestion of black cardamom. As round and supple as this is, there’s good structure and focus here, with a gentle lift of acidity on the finish adding energy.
