Nicely balanced, tightly structured Syrah that's coming out of its shell at age 8. From a vineyard 700+ feet above Westside Road on the Russian River, this wine displays seriously earthy flavors and textures along with deep raspberry fruit flavors, cedar, and subdued floral notes. Not a simple or in-your-face fruit bomb, but subtle, complex, and Euro-styled. - HK 2011-07-08
