97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

From the first sniff, you know this is a special wine. The 2016 Syrah Sur Echalas Vineyard pops with a blackberry-scented nose and impressive, seductive Syrah tones reticent of the Northern Rhône, with a soft smokiness and mineral edge, warn leather and soft ashiness that lingers on with aromas of crushed violets. There are a noticeable stemmy and black pepper tones on the nose and palate that command my attention. This is a beautifully balanced expression that manages to focus on the elegant side of Syrah, without over-extracting, over-oaking or possessing screaming high alcohol, and the finish is long and contemplative with balanced tannins and structuring acidity—this will age beautifully for decades to come! There is a reason why Christophe Baron and crew are captivating the world's attention when it comes to the Rhône varietals. Only 267 cases made. (AM) (12/2019)

94 points Wine Spectator

Plump with personality, yet focused and structured, with expressive huckleberry, violet, pepper and grilled beef accents that take on speed toward fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2027. (TF, Web Only-2019)
