2010 Lucia Syrah Susan's Hill

Community Tasting Note

Likes this wine:

92 Points

Tuesday, December 4, 2012 - LOL! Used the tasting notes assistant then added descriptives to it!

Intense Purple in color with a nose of minerality, wet forest floor, violets, prunes and figs. Still young & closed.

Thick & full bodied, long legs, still a tad alcoholic with heat, flavors of figs, plums, hints of raisins, gamey/meaty and a tad smokey with good minerality. Very well balanced and holds good promise. Medium long finish.

Had it with a thick focacia with toppings, made in the style of a Chicago deep dish pizza. Matched well. Delish!

Overall score: 92-93 pts. Time will help it along.
