A blend of 68% Syrah, 17% Mourvèdre, and 15% Grenache, this is winemaker Matt Trevisan's playful attempt at being less concerned with perfection and focusing on being dynamic, Read More...
changing things on the fly and creating a wine that is truly its own. Perfectionist uses the coolest climate syrah blocks from the estate, he ferments them whole cluster, getting a phenolic structure that stands out from other wines. Cofermenting with the grenache and mourvédre allows for a rare, individualistic wine. This is the opposite of diligent blending. Aged in concrete. Drink through 2023

other than Pisoni itself. The Syrahs are the clear highlights among these 2012s. Over the last few years Jeff and Mark Pisoni have been experimenting with whole clusters, an approach that seems to bring layers of dimension and complexity to the wines. In 2012, all three Syrahs are exceptional.

"A deep, implosive wine, the 2012 Syrah Garys' Vineyard hits the palate with serious depth and power. Here, it is the density of the fruit that stands out most. The Garys' was fermented in oak uprights, with about 70% whole clusters, an approach that is paying off nicely. Today, the 2012 is a bit muscular and tightly wound, so I suggest giving the wine another 6-12 months in bottle."

The clonal material planted in the loamy, rocky soil is very diverse and features over a dozen of the most renowned heritage selections from California and Burgundy in pursuit of the finest wine quality.

Over the last few years Jeff and Mark Pisoni have been experimenting with whole clusters, an approach that seems to bring layers of dimension and complexity to the wines. In 2012, all three Syrahs are exceptional.

"Lavender, violets, plums, black cherries all jump from the glass in the 2012 Syrah Soberanes Vineyard. A stunning, pulsating wine, the 2012 impresses for its nuance and overall harmony. Sage, mint, orange peel and rosemary are some of the notes that flesh out on the super-impressive finish. The purity of the fruit here is simply striking. The Soberanes was done with 100% whole clusters, which works beautifully here."

"The 2012 Syrah Susan's Hill emerges from a parcel within the Pisoni vineyard. Tar, smoke, game, incense and black stone fruits hit the palate with massive intensity and pure power. A broad, ample style of Syrah, the Susan's Hill is all about depth and resonance. The 45% whole clusters are very nicely integrated."

and a long finish. This is a very well balanced wine with good tension that has a very silky feel with a refreshing pop of acidity and vanilla tannin. Pair this wine with any Thai dish, specifically a peanut satay. This would also go well with a spicy shrimp dish, scallops or a brie en croute.

in French oak. It too has fantastic purity in its creme de cassis, vanilla bean and toasted spice-driven aromatics. It's a full-bodied, rich and textured effort that has solid mid-palate depth and ripe tannin on the finish. While from a difficult vintage, you wouldn't know it by tasting it, and it will continue to impress through 2020."

the nose, with majestic flavors of strawberries, currants, black cherries, sandalwood, and touch of rawhide in the mouth. Ripe, rich, and full-bodied, yet still shows acid on the finish. The modest tannin, good structure, and lively make this a great food wine!

ANTONIO GALLONI 92 POINTS - "I always look forward to tasting McPrice Myers's wines, as they are so full of character and personality. That is certainly the case with these 2011s and 2010s. As always, the wines are bold, rich and juicy. Readers will also want to take a look at the wines Myers makes under his Barrel 27 label, which are reviewed separately here. Those wines also deliver plenty of personality, but at lower price points."

"The 2011 L'Ange Rouge is gorgeous in this vintage, even if it needs time for some of the slightly rough edges to melt away further in bottle. Dark red cherries, pomegranate, spices and tobacco all emerge over time. The 2011 is another striking, hugely appealing wines from McPrice Myers. The medium-bodied style is best suited for drinking over the next handful of years. Drinking window: 2014 - 2018."

ROBERT PARKER'S THE WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - "These 2010s and 2011s from McPrice are straight up fantastic. Very classy and pure, they all benefitted from substantial air time and deserve another year or two in the cellar. In addition to delivering rock-star quality, they also represent superb values. This is another Paso Robles producer who has consistently produced outstanding wines that remain more than reasonably priced given their quality. They merit serious attention!"

"Moving to the 2011 reds, and one of the more southern Rhone styled Grenache blends coming out of California, the 2011 Grenache l’Ange Rouge offers up beautiful kirsch liqueur, garrigue, spice and basil-like nuances as well as a medium to full-bodied, nicely focused and structured palate. There’s some tannin to resolve, yet it’s sweet and well integrated. Enjoy this beauty over the coming 4-6 years. Drink now-2019."

The 2011 McPrice Myers Terre Blanche is an outstanding blend of 80% Roussanne and 20% Viognier. It shows superb aromas of ripe pear, mineral, hazelnut and citrus rind to go with a medium-bodied, silky, yet energetic palate. While there’s lots of fruit here, the overall impression is of purity and class. Enjoy it over the coming 2-3 years. Drink now-2016."
McPRICE MYERS 12 EARTH

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - "McPrice Myers continues to churn out outstanding, singular and age-worthy wines under his McPrice Myers label. Read More...
Both of his late release 2011s showed beautifully, and the 2012s are a step up. The 2012s buck the vintage stereotype and have enough tannin and concentration to warrant short-term cellaring. In addition, these efforts always have a savory, structured style that should appeal to both Old and New World wine lovers.

"Another great 2012, the 2012 Beautiful Earth (78% Syrah, 14% Grenache and 8% Mourvedre) has an inky purple color that-s followed by ample blackberry, blueberry, pepper, earth, mineral and hints of violets. This full-bodied, layered and seamless effort has awesome intensity and richness, notable purity of fruit and a big finish that stays focused and clean. Aged 16 months in 50% new French, give it a year and drink through 2024."

ANTONIO GALLONI 92 POINTS - "The Syrah-based wines are the highlights among this year's new releases from McPrice Myers. At their best, the wines are racy, beautifully layered and full of nuance. Only the Ange Rouge is less expressive than normal, but it has also just been bottled.

"The 2012 Beautiful Earth is a gorgeous. Layered and beautifully balanced in the glass, the 2012 graces the palate with dark red cherry, plum, smoke and leather. All the elements are very nicely melded together. The 2012 finishes with substantial depth and polish. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this jewel of a wine from McPrice Myers. The blend is 78% Syrah, 14% Grenache and 14% Mourvèdre. Drinking window: 2014 - 2022."

WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - Looking at the three Syrahs, these are all incredible efforts that go screaming past anything else even close to this price point. Read More...
The 2012 Syrah Estate Verna’s offers a vibrant purple color to go with a full-bodied, seamless and layered profile. Blackberry, cassis, tobacco leaf, beef blood and hints of iron emerge from this stunner that should drink nicely for 4-5 years, if not longer. All from Melville’s Verna Vineyard, 100% Syrah, 70% destemmed and aged 11 months in neutral oak, it’s a no-brainer purchase and don’t miss it.

Winemaker Greg Brewer and grower Chad Melville continue to knock it out of the park with these Melville releases. Focusing on site, if not plot, specific releases, neutral oak, no SO2 until racking and varying degrees of whole cluster are the norm here. The wines have individual characters and, stylistically, lean toward the more complex, finesse-driven side of the spectrum. They “wow” more for their balance and nuance than their power and richness. They also remain reasonably priced!”

Melville has become a nucleus for Rhone varietals from Santa Rita Hills. Nestled in the heart of Santa Barbara County, Melville has always focused on their vineyards, knowing that the vineyard is where great wine begins! After studying at U.C. Davis, brothers Brent & Chad, who manage the family’s estate vineyards, focused on giving winemaker Greg Brewer (also of Brewer-Clifton fame) the best fruit they could possibly produce. In turn, Greg has crafted wines that receive high scores and rave reviews year-in and year-out…and this year is no different! As always, their Verna’s Vineyard Syrah is a prodigious effort; Medium-bodied & richly nuanced, from black pepper to bacon fat!

windier then Melville's Sta. Rita Hills property during the growing season, this estate has proven wellsuited for growing this aromatic Rhone varietal. The fruit was gently whole cluster pressed, transferred to neutral barrels (5-20 year French oak), cold-fermented at 45°F for three months and prepared for bottling in late March. Cold fermentation, neutral vessels and the avoidance of malo-lactic fermentation were employed to retain the wine’s freshness and exotic expressions. Yields were 3.2 lbs/vine (3.0 tons/acre).

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - "The 2013 Viognier Estate Verna’s is another outstanding effort from Greg that also represents a smoking value. Giving up classic apricot, pineapple and loads of floral qualities (almost a flower oil-like quality) to go with a medium-bodied, unctuously textured, yet still surprisingly fresh and focused style on the palate. Aged 6 months in neutral oak, it’s an impressive Viognier to enjoy over the coming year or two."

What we love about the Rhône varietals is that they are just so versatile! Not only in regards to how well they thrive in almost any part of California, but also how well they pair Read More...
with a variety of food! Winemaker Gary Brookman combines old world techniques with modern technology so the wines reflect the unique characteristics of the individual vineyard, or terroir.

Sourced from a low-yielding vineyard in Madera, the wine is aromatically complex with citrus and honeysuckle notes on the noseand a plush feel on the palate. Intense and vibrant, with tropical fruit and apricots, this richly balanced wine is a show stopper, and a great alternative for those who love a full-bodied Chardonnay!We’re always amazed by Miner’s across-the-board quality. This is frankly an exceptional Viognier. Aromatically complex withcitrus and honeysuckle on the nose and a satiny, fleshy feel on the palate. Vibrant flavors of tropical fruit and exotic flowers characterize this ever-so-alluringly white wine. Balanced by just the right amount of acidity, pair it with crab cakes, sushi or even stir-fry and you’ll be a believer.
