The fruit seemed to be gone compared to what I remember from this vintage. The oak was still there, and there was some serious spice going on. Nonetheless, I think it peaked a while back. If you're holding on to it, don't.
For me this Syrah can be summed up as "Good not great" I guess that's because nothing about it really stood out enough for me to jot it down in my notes. It just had a decent nose, decent mouthfeel, a tasty finish, but nothing distinguishing about it. I don't want to sound like I'm giving it a bad rap because it wasn't bad. Just nothing jumping out at me about it.
