Our Review

A very fine young Syrah, a great success for the winery. The '08 shows the quality of Pinot Noir, but has the structure and complexity to improve in the cellar, although it's very young. Shows the classic varietal flavors of blackberries and currants, with savory smoky oak. Really a promising young wine, and should develop over the next six years.
