Accolades for Syrah
The Wine Advocate Dubs 2008 Les Collines Syrah "Gripping, Concentrated"
"..displays outstanding grip, mouth-coating flavors & superb length." 93 Points
Dr Jay Miller, The Wine Advocate, September 2011
"The 2008 Syrah Les Collines Vineyard was aged in a mix of new French and seasoned Hungarian oak. It is more expressive than the Syrah blend with greater densinty, concentration, and succulence of fruit. In the glass it displays outstanding grip, mouth-coating flavors and superb length. Give it another 2-3 years to fully blossom and drink it from 2014 to 2023. 93 Points
"French ex-pat Marie-Eve Gilla is a partner and winemaker of Forgeron Cellars, located in Walla Walla. These are the fines wines I have tasted to date from this reliable source."
