2008 Melville "Donna's" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah

SKU #1064081 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This was reviewed highly by my Colleague Robert Parker on release, and he nailed this wine. The 2008 Syrah Donna's is a true powerhouse that has incredible amounts of fat, texture and glycerol while staying fresh, light and even elegant. Still youthful and lively, with black and blue fruits, graphite, camphor, roasted herbs and spice, it has remarkable purity, sweet, polished tannin and a great finish. There's certainly no harm in drinking this today, but it has another 10-15 years of longevity as well. Drink through 2031. (JD) Inner quote mark (12/2016)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Opaque purple. A complex, highly aromatic nose melds wild dark berries, tobacco, black olive, smoke and violet. Suave, sweet and fine-grained, with ripe balancing acidity giving the broad dark fruit and floral flavors a sappy quality and excellent clarity. The finishing tannins are firm but fine and come on late then fade quickly into the extremely persistent fruit. In a very cool style; this will be great with any dish that involves bacon. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2010)
