The Wine Advocate 91 pts - Jay Miller
The 2009 Alpha Syrah contains 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Viognier. It spent 12 months in French oak. The aromatics receive a pleasing lift from the Viognier component in addition to notes of meat, game, lavender, and blueberry. Rich, layered, and long, this pleasure-bent Syrah has the structure to evolve for another 2-3 years and will be at its best from 2013 to 2021.

Wine Spectator 87 pts - James Molesworth
Ripe, polished and forward, with toasty vanilla and sweet spice leading the way for creamy-textured plum and blackberry fruit. Drink now. 8,350 cases imported.

Wine Enthusiast 88 pts - Michael Schachner
Blackberry and cola aromas are cool and collected. The palate has weight and texture to accompany berry, mint, herb and peppery flavors. Turns more herbal and roasted as it unwinds. Pepper and spice lead the finish.

Description:
Of intense ruby red color, it has enchanting floral aromas accompanied by tobacco and leathery notes. On the mouth, it's powerful and full bodied to the palate, with soft and mature tannins and a very long and elegant finish. The wine has been aged in French oak for one year and had only one soft filtering. Aurelio has added 7% of Cabernet Sauvignon to improve the structure of the wine and 3% of Viognier to the final blend to enhance the wine's nose and soften its tannins, producing a superb Syrah.
