2008 Patland Syrah Magnum in Wooden Gift Box
93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
The fruit is sourced from a site that straddles Atlas Peak, but the vineyard is not ex- clusively located there, which is why this wine is labeled with the broad Napa Valley appellation. This 100% Syrah is extraordinarily rich, and it floods the mouth with flavors of blackberries and black currants, plus hints of crisp bacon and black pepper. Dry and tannic, it shows elegance and balance, and it will develop over the next six years. —S.H.
Dark Garnet hue; Complex aromas of vibrant raspberry, boysenberry, dark chocolate, tar, white pepper and sage excite the senses. Intense flavors of ripe wild berry, chocolate covered fig, toffee, clove and cedar spice are supported by integrated French oak, ripe tannin, and a classic syrah driven fleshy mid palate.
