Wine Enthusiast Magazine reviews Feliz Noche Syrah, Pinot Noir
Wine Enthusiast Magazine recently published excellent reviews of our 2006 Syrah and our 2007 Pinot Noir. Awarding the Pinot Noir 92 Points, reviewer Steve Heimoff called it "a real beauty that should develop complexity for a decade." Only 50 cases were made, so it isn't expected to last long! A month later, our Syrah earned 91 Points. Heimoff wrote: "What a roll Feliz Noche has been on. They're scoring hit after hit, and this lovely Syrah is right on." Thank you Steve - this is the kind of review we love.
