Fine rendition of the fruit-forward nature of Adam's Syrah program. Better acid balance than his Sonoma Cty from the same vintage. Stood up very well to Tri-Tip with Santa Maria spices and a sapuicy red sauce. Let interesting as a sippin' wine, though; less-layered than an Arcadian Sleepy Hollow from '06 that won the head-to-head prior to the meal; during the meal, this was way ahead.
The previous posters were absolutely right this wine is really singing. So good it has to be its prrine. So happy I waited on this wine. Drinking great not it should last for at least another five years or more
My last bottle. Vibrant color, not as dark as most New World syrahs. Obviously from California, but not overbearing or ponderous. A ton of black and red fruits with a hint of pepper. Somewhat surprising complexity. I could drink this all night - with or without food. Probably hasn't reached its peak.
