Another in a seemingly endless succession of excellent Russian Hill Syrahs. They really have the secret with this varietal. Firmer, more old world, and maybe a bit less charming than the '04 Windsor Oaks Summit tasted recently, but beautifully balanced, sleek, elegant. Lots of smokey, Cassis-accented fruit to satisfy the taste buds. Completely untiring on the palate. - HK 2014-04-02
