What a find! This outstanding, full-bodied wine has beautiful Syrah aromas of dark, ripe blackberries and blueberries, as well as wonderful, complex floral and oak components. The extraction level and flavors are like a top Chateauneuf du Pape, Australian Shiraz or California Russian River Syrah. High alcohol level is buried in the complexity and fruit. Long, satisfying finish. Stupendous buy. Nice looking bottle, too. - WB Team 2001-08-20
