93 points- Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate. Aug. 2012. "Adelaida’s 2009 Syrah Block 6 Reserve Anna’s Vineyard shows more aromatic lift than some of the other Syrahs. Violet, black cherries and mint are woven together in a refined, polished style that stands apart for its class, finesse and sheer polish. Sweet perfumed notes linger on the gorgeous, highly articulate finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017." Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate.
