2006 Ampelos Syrah Gamma

Community Tasting Note


92 Points

Monday, September 5, 2011 - Excellent Cali Syrah, this one did not feel over the top from a fruit/alc. perspective and it was quite elegant and balanced, still struggling to understand why this varietal struggles in Cali and it is quite unique and attractive when put against it's Aussie Shiraz 'cousins' (albeit the good examples are more pricey) - Black, full bodied with a nose of blueberry, plum, cherry, pepper and vanilla, good structure, decent tannins and acidity, well balanced, sweet, silky smooth on the palate with excellent length, outstanding (92 Points).
