Drank over several nights: initially quite oaky but smoothes out nicely on the second night. On the nose this shows deep tarry, plummy fruit. On the palate this is slightly creamy, with tar, plums, some meatiness and nice spice with a good medium finish with additional spiced and relatively mild tannins. This bottle provided smoother drinking experience than the previous one and the wine seems very much ready to be consumed. 89-90
This Meyer Family Syrah is drinking really well right now. Terrific nose of cherry cola and licorice. On the palate, well integrated red fruit and spice, with a hint of that licorice from the nose, carries through with a tart cherry finish that makes you want more. Great old world, food friendly, CA Syrah. Outstanding.
