Time to drink this one. Initially a bit flat, but opened up some with the aerator. Red fruits, muted, with some vanilla and a touch of spice box on the bouquet. The finish is a bit lacking, probably due to age (all of 6 years). I'm still drinking it 3 hours in and enjoying it. Taste was classic syrah to start, the full fruit with a herbal skeleton. Now a couple of hours in its still bright, but also a bit hot. Not as good as when we had it at the winery on the Silverado Trail in Autumn 2009. Still I enjoyed it. I'm ok it was my last bottle.
