Reynvaan Family Vineyards received an extraordinary score of 96  points for our 2008 The Unnamed Syrah, while The Contender and In The Rocks each received scores of 95  from Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate!!

The 2008 Unnamed Syrah is blended with 10% Viognier and displays Cote-Rotie like scents, an elegant personality, refined tannins, and impeccable balance. This already complex effort should drink well for at least a decade. All of the Syrahs spent 18 months in barrel with approximately 15% (or less) new oak.

The 2008 In the Rocks with 6% Viognier and 2% Marsanne, gives up alluring notes of roasted meat, bacon, pepper, lavender, and blueberry. Beautifully proportioned, precise and lengthy, this pleasure-bent offering will evolve for 2-3 years and drink well through 2023. All of the Syrahs spent 18 months in barrel with approximately 15% (or less) new oak.

The 2008 The Contender with 4% Viognier and 4% Marsanne, displays the most finesse. Elegant, refined, succulent and impossible to resist, it, too, should evolve gracefully and drink well through 2023. All of the Syrahs spent 18 months in barrel with approximately 15% (or less) new oak.
