Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Cassis, raspberry and dried fruit, pepper and spice on the nose. The pepper really stands out all around. A few herbaceous notes - thyme and a touch of mint. Sweet cedar wood aroma. A touch of baking spice. Medium minus body, same with acidity. Smooth and silky finish.
Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

While this may be the third tier Syrah at Creekside Estate Winery after the Broken Press and Unbroken Press, the Iconoclast Syrah still punches above its weight class as a quality red at a very fair price. Expressive plum, black cherry, leather, tar, smoke, violets, and black pepper aromas. Black cherry, sour cherry, and sweet vanilla across the palate and through the finish. Mouth watering acidity, bold but relaxed tannins, and a medium body make for an ideal table wine. Serve alongside steak au poivre, grilled red meats, or burgers.
There is some Viognier in this mostly Syrah wine from the France's Northern Rhone. When ripe, Viognier is very floral and is often blended into Syrah wines to set the colour and to give the wine a floral lift. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
