2017 Long Shadows Sequel Syrah - 93+ PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Put together by John Duval, the 2017 Sequel (100% Syrah fermented with 30% stems) is a ripe, sexy wine that's in the same ballpark as past vintages. Rocking notes of blackcurrants, blackberries, peppered game, licorice, and subtle chocolate all flow to a powerful, full-bodied Syrah that has good purity of fruit, ripe, chewy tannins, a bid mid-palate, and a great finish. It's a touch unevolved and in need of a year or three of bottle age, but it's a beautiful wine that will evolve for a solid 8-10 years or more."

2017 Long Shadows Sequel Syrah - 93 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Musky perfume of dark raspberry, black olive, bitter chocolate and brown spices, plus a subtle hint of animal fur. Silky and seamless on entry, then as much red fruits as black in the sweet middle palate, with floral and spice notes adding clarity and lift. This wine will give pleasure early but also last well. - Stephen Tanzer"

2016 Long Shadows Sequel Syrah - 93 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"A blend of 93% Syrah and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2016 Sequel is another ripe, sexy, yet pure and balanced vintage for this cuvée. Lovely blackberry, smoked earth, graphite, and ground pepper all flow to a medium to full-bodied, silky, elegant wine that packs less of a punch than normal, yet is balanced and layered, with a great finish."

2016 Long Shadows Sequel Syrah - 92 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Alluring nose combines black raspberry, minerals, black olive and bitter chocolate, along with meat and woodsmoke nuances. There's a compelling plushness to the concentrated flavors of blackberry, blueberry, cassis, violet and bitter chocolate. Finishes long, with notes of violet and red licorice and substantial tannins that dust the incisors. - Stephen Tanzer"

2014 Long Shadows Sequel Syrah - 94 PTS - WA

wa94"Made by John Duval, the 2014 Syrah Sequel is a sexy beast of a Syrah (there’s a splash of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend) that was brought up all in small barrels. Deep, inky colored, with a huge nose of black fruits, chocolate, smoke meats and licorice, it's a powerhouse on the palate and gives up full-bodied flavors, ripe, polished tannin and a great finish. - Jeb Dunnuck"

2013 Long Shadows Sequel Syrah - 93 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Highly aromatic nose offers scents of raspberry, cinnamon, white pepper and olive tapenade. In a juicy, spicy, rather penetrating style; clean and fruit-driven, with a spicy mineral underpinning. Boasts excellent density to its purple fruit flavors and carries impressively on the finish. - Stephen Tanzer"
