2007 Columbia Valley Red Wine - 91 PTS - Wine Enthusiast

The Wine Advocate October 31, 2009

2006 SAROS - 92 PTS

The 2006 Saros is a blend of 50% Malbec, 25%
Tempranillo, and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 21
months in 45% new French oak. A saturated purple in color,
it offers up an expressive nose of pain grille, spice box,
violets, black cherry, and blackberry. Dense, structured, and
altogether serious, this savory, spicy effort will continue to
evolve for several more years and provide a drinking
window extending from 2011 to 2018  - J.M.


The Wine Advocate October 31, 2009

2006 RED WINE- 90 PTS

Syzygy’s purple-colored 2006 Red Wine is a blend of 56%
Syrah, 20% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 11%
Malbec aged for 18 months in 35% new French oak. It
exhibits an enticing nose of sandal wood, spice box,
incense, game, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. Medium
to full-bodied, dense, and layered with succulent blue and
black fruit, this already complex effort will continue to evolve
for another 1-2 years and provide prime drinking from

2011 to 2016. - J.M.

Wine Spectator October 15, 2009 Issue


Supple, seductive and explosive with its beautiful plum, huckleberry,
cream and white pepper flavors that glide easily over a bed of polished tannins, lingering on the expressive finish.

Drink now through 2013.—H.S.


Wine Spectator - October 15, 2009 Issue


Dark, ripe and focused, offering a chunky mouthful of black cherry, tobacco, molasses and black pepper flavors. Distinctive, but needs time to soften the edges. Best from 2012 through 2016. - H.S.


2006 SYZYGY Cabernet Sauvignon

June 2009

"I first tasted this at the winery with Zach Brettler, and it came on as a sexy Cabernet offering a ripe berry nose with cassis and oriental incense, and deliciously well-wrought flavors. It had been open only ten minutes, so Zach gave me the bottle to take home. At lunch an hour later, it opened up to sultry aromas of black cherry, huckleberry and crushed roses with a voluptuous dark fruit entry, followed by an intermixture of chewy fruits, mocha, licorice, roast coffee and minerally earth, culminating in a lingering chewy tannin finish. I suspect it will get even better". Rand Sealey's "Review of WA Wines". 19+/20 Point System

2005 SAROS 134

The Wine Advocate - June 2008

"The 2005 Saros 134 is an unusual blend of 44% Tempranillo, 44% Malbec, and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon. It was aged in 40% new French oak. Opaque purple, it has an enticing nose of violets, black cherry, and blueberry. Ripe, sweet, and opulent on the palate, the wine has outstanding depth, concentration, and incipient complexity. Drink this lengthy wine from 2012 to 2025. It is a tour de force."

2005 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The Wine Advocate - June 2008

"The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from the Conner Lee and Klipsun vineyards, spent 21 months in 45% new French oak. Opaque purple-colored, it offers up aromas of pain grille, pencil lead, spice box, black currant, and blackberry liqueur. The wine has splendid balance, a satiny texture, and expresses its varietal beautifully. Long and harmonious, this is a superb effort. "

2005 Walla Walla Valley Syrah

Wine Spectator - June 30, 2008

"Smooth and velvety, with beautifully focused blackberry, raspberry and plum fruit that bobs and weaves through fine tannins and persists enticingly on the long, long finish. A big wine with unexpected grace, this grabs hold and doesn't let go. "

Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Enthusiast- December 1, 2007


"This is pure Cabernet from older vines, and has a meaty, herbal power to it. Streaks of tar and some lively cinnamon spice add life to the fruit, which is solid and earthy. I pick up black licorice, vanilla cream, and still more interesting flavors wrapped into the tannins, which seem dusty and smoky and a bit grainy. This has some real substance to it, and shows some of the herbal side of the grape. The best so far from SYZYGY."
