- 38% Grenache, 31% Syrah, 31% Mourvedre. Aromatic and fuller bodied. Spice and plum with acidic finish. Will shine best with food due to flavor complexity. 86.
- Thacher 2008 Syrah Paso Robles. Fruity and less complex than the 2009. Enjoyable, but not more than once 82.
- Thacher 2010 Vin Rouge. Syrah 71% / Grenache 29%. A thoughtful blend. Both earthy and fruity with dark fruits and deep dark color. Long finish from the Syrah with peppery notes. 88.
- Thacher 2009 Syrah Paso Robles. Uncharacteristically fruit forward. Full bodied and delicious. 92.
