2011 Meyer Family Syrah

I thought this was terrible. Perhaps suffered some heat damage in transit, but the cork did not indicate any seepage. Tried two bottles side by side and concluded that there is no structure, little fruit and not much to be excited about. Gave the rest away.

Hard to say where this is going due to the oak. Strong tannins as well.

14 hour slow-ox at 55 degrees. Stewed prunes on the nose and front palate. Soft tannins as expected from DP. Lacks the bright red and blue fruits that i expected from the vintage. I agree with Cristal2000's review below.

Disappointed. Weak nose. Very weird mid palate and finish. Oversold to me by wine store. Way overpriced at $20.

Wow did this change after a double decant via Vinturi. Initially closed without much fruit, but then blossomed into a wonderful blend.

Still going strong. Agree with Yamadori that this is in the perfect drinking window right now and certainly has some time left. From 750ml.

5/15/2015 - bigdomer wrote: 89 points

Disappointed. I expected a smooth new world blend mellowed by the franc. This wine hits you in the face like a 100% Rutherford cab. Not what I was expecting from Russell who is supposed to be a franc-master. Color is beautiful, though. Super dark blackberry.

2/21/2015 - bigdomer wrote: NR

Agree with previous tasting notes that this is one of the top three cabernets I have tasted from the 2011 vintage. Only a tiny hint of green instead of it being overpowering like most other Napa cabs from '11.
