2003 Carlisle Dry Creek Valley Syrah

SKU #1083741 91 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark *Two stars* If this very rich, big-bodied wine is clearly beholden to ripeness, it is all Syrah at its heart, and it possesses a surprising degree of deep, almost succulent fruit to make its ample alcohol no more than a minor distraction. Its first impressions of ripe berries are gradually joined by elements of pepper and leather and roasted meats, and it builds to a lengthy, comparatively polished finish that is given just the right bit of grip by integral tannins. As with most wines of immodest ripeness, its near-term attractions are plentiful, but a few years of age will find it more fully evolved and better knit yet. Inner quote mark (3/2006)

K&L Notes

According to the producer's website: "Dark purple. Captivating aromas of blackberry, blueberry, smoked meats, and mocha. Even a hint of new saddle leather. A great sniff! In the mouth, rich and full-bodied, with plenty of blackberry fruit through the lasting finish." (08/05)
