Wine Enthusiast - 91pts  "Pronounced Kay-lee, this Syrah is unabashedly funky. If you like a wine with generous aromas of barnyard and garden, along with potent, ripe, berry-laden fruit, this delivers in spades. Barrel aging adds chocolate and dark espresso character to the finish."

Wine Spectator - 91pts  "A bit syrupy in texture, focusing generous and seductive plum and currant fruit into a laser beam that lights up the finish and balances the firm tannins. Best from 2016 through 2019."

Vinous / Antonio Galloni - 90pts  "Bright medium ruby. Aromas of raspberry, smoked meat, bacon fat and crushed stone. Sweet, round and fine-grained if youthfully bound-up, with deeper-pitched black raspberry, dark chocolate and licorice flavors accented by a note of pink peppercorn. Quite different in style from the higher-pitched Jolie Bouche: perhaps a bit less refined but the tannins are broader even if the wine is still quite backward."

Winemaker Notes
“Another blockbuster from Red Mountain, the 2011 Ceidleigh explodes with aromas of pepper, wood, eucalyptus, black licorice, blackberry extract and violets. It’s a dense wine, especially considering the cool growing season. This red is also well proportioned, exemplifying great tannin and fruit weight balance.” —Peter Devison, Winemaker
