Another blockbuster from this joint project of Chad Melville, Jim Knight, Sashi Moorman (Stolpman Vineyards) and Peter Hunken . This one is thick and rich with blueberry pie filling aromas and complex notes of pencil lead and spice. Floral characters keep this wine in check, adding their more feminine influence. On the palate this is rich and thick as jam. Full-bodied with spicy tannins and a long finish. No food required.Robert Parker: "This sexy, seductive Syrah exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, forward, evolved aromas of black olives, ground pepper, and sweet black currant liqueur. Good underlying acidity, medium body, and a pure long finish suggest it will provide plenty of pleasure over the next 3-4 years."
