All Long Shadows Vintners wines are made in small lots to allow maximum blending flexibility. Occasionally, a few lots of select barrels stand out as exemplary of the vintage. When this is the case and the winemaker identifies a rare, exceptional wine worthy of showcasing, a limited Vintage Select wine is bottled.

Tasting Notes:


A deeply aromatic wine with pungent notes of fresh blackberries, cassis, cedar and hints of licorice that echo on the palate around a ripe core of dark cherry fruit and exotic spices. Wonderfully vibrant, with great structure and depth, the 2018 Sequel Bin 898 finishes with a lasting impression of espresso and spicy oak notes.

99 Points

Made from 100% hand-harvested Syrah, the 2018 Sequel Vintage Select Bin 898 is fresh, pure and elegant with succulent red fruit aromas, fresh potpourri and layers of fresh florals that sashay with focus, precision and finesse before spicy oak tones sing in unison from resting in 75% new French oak. Full-bodied, fresh and fleshy, the wine has impeccable balance on the palate and is seductively layered with succulent acidity and fine-grained tannins, overflowing with immense pleasure and picturesque black raspberry and pink peppercorn flavors. The BIN 898 continues to uncoil and unwind, revealing a powerhouse wine that exudes fresh, spicy red fruit tones emanating with precision and focus. Bravo! Hands down, this is the best Vintage Select BIN 898 yet.

Dusty dried cherries and currants are complicated by notes of brown spice, olive tapenade and savory herbs as the 2018 Sequel Vintage Select BIN 898 smolders up from the glass. This is elegance personified, impossibly silky and refined, seamlessly so, with ripe black fruits excited by a tinge of sour citrus under an air of rosemary and sage. The 2018 finishes dramatically long and potent, staining the palate with a wild berry concentration and web of fine-grained tannins, yet through it all, the mouth is left watering for more. This is simply spellbinding, but be aware there are only 96 cases to go around.

Notes of dark plums and black cherries with chocolate, black licorice and wet stones. Medium- to full-bodied with fine-grained, polished tannins and a sleek texture. Complex and fleshy with a lingering, silky finish.
