Vinous: 98 Points

The 2007 Syrah Dangerous Birds from Eleven Confessions includes 4.5% Grenache and 2.5% Viognier all fully destemmed. It is a seamless show stopper of the highest level. The fruit is decidedly opulent in the 2007 while the high percentage of new oak barrels (84%) contributes to the wine's shape and volume. An impeccable eternal finish rounds things out in style. (Drink between 2013-2022)

Wine Advocate: 98 Points

In addition to these new releases I was also able to taste through a number of older vintages including the 2001 Albino 2006 Hoodoo Man 2003 The Inaugural 2004 Ode to E 1998 E Raised 2001 On Your Toes 2005 Nail in My Cranium and 2007 Syrah Dangerous Birds. To say I came away impressed would be an understatement. Anyone who claims this big rich style can-t age needs to taste these wines. I opted to just list my scores for the older releases as I find Bob-s initial write-ups spot on.
