OVERVIEW

From the epic 2014 vintage, the Harrison Grade Syrah by Radio-Coteau enjoys partial whole cluster fermentation giving it incredible freshness in what was a hot growing season. A wine of status, structure and balance as it remains quite elegant yet punchy. This Radio-Coteau bottling is delicious today with notes of black tea and dark fruits and will mature beautifully over the coming decade.

CRITIC REVIEWS

The 2014 Syrah Harrison Grade Estate is a fabulous wine for many reasons. Among them, the Harrison Grade appears to have handled the stress of the growing season better than some of the other wines in this lineup. Bright acids prop up the red cherry, plum, spice, mint, rose petal and blood orange flavors. Still tightly wound and in need of bottle age, the 2014 is simply superb, not to mention one of the clear highlights in this range. 94 Points. Antonio Galloni
