JD99 "Lastly, and all destemmed aged 18 months in roughly 70% new French oak, the 2017 Syrah IX Estate needs to be tasted to be believed. It’s hard to understand how this incredible wine was produced in a vintage like 2017. Revealing a deep purple color as well as a monster bouquet of blackberries, orange blossom, smoked meat, bacon fat, and spring flower, it's deep, full-bodied, and beautifully pure on the palate, with silky tannins and a singular, exotic character. It’s not easy to find, but unquestionably worth the effort!" JD Jan 2020

RP98+ "Very deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 IX Syrah Estate opens with the most beautiful nose of crushed black berries, boysenberries, mulberries, chocolate-covered cherries, star anise and red roses with touches of garrigue, mandarin peel and fragrant earth. Medium-bodied, the palate is very firm and elegant with approachably ripe, rounded tannins and layer upon layer of perfumed flavors. It has a long pepper and spice-laced finish. Very impressive!"

“It was an adventure! It was definitely one of those vintages that had a philosophical impact,” Colgin’s winemaker Allison Tauziet said, speaking about the 2017 vintage. “We had a lot of rain to begin. And then the heat tempered the vigor of the vines. It was a year where a lot of decisions mattered.” In spite of the challenges 2017 threw at them, Colgin came up trumps with their Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. But the heat really hit the Merlot hard. “There is not much Merlot in our 2017 blends,” Tauziet confessed." LPB for WA Oct 2019
