1) In terms of style, there are none that compare to his as they all lack some amount of acid, a thing that is not a problem with his wines. That said, this vintage adds richness but not at the expense of green notes - though the green notes are slow to show, which is why I think this needs time to open and really show itself. If I were asked what other nice CF exists in the kosher realm that has this depth, I would say the 2005 Ella Valley CF.
2) I think that all of Benyo's chards need time, but that is me. The 2008 was lovely but highly acidic and with a bit of oak, that needs time to open. This one is unique and a bit different in a fun way, like I said more Viognier like. 2011 was a very cool year, so maybe the tropical fruit never made it. I tasted this a few times throughout the life of it and the fruit was there but very dry, now it is fuller with a nice body but different fruit. Interesting.
3) This Syrah is as rich as the past but with more extraction. I liked all the Syrah(s), this has rich mouth with lots of pepper and spice, the tannins are a bit large but not harsh.
