2013 Le Supplement Estate Syrah, Eleven Confessions Vineyard | Ventura, California 750 ml

100 points, Jeb Dunnuck

I've had so many incredible Syrahs from this estate, it's hard to tell if the 2013 Syrah Le Supplement will be the best yet, but it's unquestionably one of the greatest Syrah made in California. Reminding me of the 2009 Cote Rotie La Turque from Domaine Guigal with its smoky, meaty bouquet of creme de cassis, pencil lead, bacon fat, pepper, espresso and hits of violets, this drop dead gorgeous Syrah is full-bodied, opulent and sexy, yet also concentrated, structured and just hinting at its ultimate potential. I wouldn't put this past being the greatest Syrah made in California - ever - yet like the Grenache, it needs short term cellaring. Bravo! | 100 points, Jeb Dunnuck for jebdunnuck.com

The 2013 Estate Syrah Le Supplement is a model SQN wine if there ever was one. Its orchestra consists of 89% Syrah, 6% Petite Sirah, 3% Grenache and 2% Viognier. Most of that fruit was destemmed and only 28% was whole cluster. It too is all Eleven Confessions. Here 83% new French oak was splurged on, the rest was used barrels. Don't know if calling it a beauty is fair because it is more masculine, but it IS something to savor...no doubt about it. I could go on and on and on describing a peacock's tail of aromas and the almost regal cloak this toned Majesty is wearing, but so as to not bore you to death and exhaust / expose my embarrassing vocabulary satchel, I'll just say this "extra" just bursts and sings and draws from everywhere imaginable in the wilderness to express its impressive power and sophisticated stance. It is supple and refined with a nearly intimidating body, but the dainty personality of a humming bird with a Stephen Hawking mind. | Manfred Krankl for SQN
