  • Might be passed it's prime, but a nice wine none the less! Enjoyed it with a Margherita pizza. Definitely has a spicy nose, but lacking in the flavor department. Still have 1 to drink!

  • Maybe this wine has already seen its best days. Its been decanting now four nearly four hours and the predominant aroma and flavor is still alcohol. There is a bit of fruity jam on the nose as well as some spiciness, but these are well in the background. Some flavors of blackberry, raspberry, and plum. Overall, this wine is weak and a bit watery and, considering the amount of tannins still present, I am doubtful this is a result of the wine's age. The producer's website notes this '98 was a problematic year. From the taste of this wine, I would have to agree.

  • What a nice wine! Not a lot of fruit forward, but extremely well balanced. Much simpler than a lot of the "out there" Syrahs coming out now. A real pleasure to drink, and holding up strong.
