95 Points Wine Enthusiast:
"Blueberry, blackberry and meaty garrigue define this deliciously lush and complex wine, the grape a tragic rarity in the appellation. Thick concentration is lifted by a bright underbelly of fresh, persistent acidity that boosts and complements the more brooding, brawny soul."

94 Points Robert Parker:  "The 2017 Syrah Wild Mountainside was made with 33% whole cluster and aged for 15 months, 33% in new Ermitage hogsheads and 20% in amphorae. It has a deep ruby-purple color and a nose of roasted coffee, fried thyme and sage, dark chocolate, blackcurrants, chargrilled meats and desiccated violets. Full-bodied, it explodes in the mouth, absolutely jam-packed with ripe black fruit and savory layers, framed by firm, grainy tannins and seamless acidity to lift the very long, very flavorful finish. Wow!"

94 Points Jeb Dunnuck:
"There are three Syrahs from Smith. His 2017 Syrah Wild Mountainside comes from a handful of sites in the Russian River and spent 15 months in a mix of one-third new French oak, 20% amphora, and the balance in used barrels. This rocking effort offers classic cool-climate notes of blue fruits, violets, ground pepper, and game. With medium to full body, beautiful tannins, and a seamless texture, it’s going to keep for over a decade."

Winemaker Notes: Black cherry, boysenberry, lavender, violet and green peppercorn are all present in the aroma of the Dumol 2017 Wild Mountainside Syrah. There's lovely clarity of flavor and purity of cool climate fruit: cassis and blackberry offset by thyme, tobacco and cocoa nib. A lushness of texture takes over with lingering black fruits and lilac on the peppery, extended finish. Drink this soon after release or enjoy the reward of 10+ years of aging.
