Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 96 points
Blended of 48% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 22% Mourvèdre, the 2014 Terry Hoage Vineyard has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and slightly reticent nose of red currants and raspberry leaves with suggestions of black pepper, fragrant earth and mossy bark, with a hint of pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, tightly wound and with fairly restrained, earthy/savory flavors, it has beautifully ripe tannins and a nice long refreshing finish.
Wine Spectator – 92 points
Shows depth and torque, offering dark raspberry and rose petal aromas and densely structured smoky plum, pepper and mineral flavors that build toward big but polished tannins. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Best from 2019 through 2027.
