1997 Ojai "Bien Nacido" Santa Barbara County Syrah

SKU #340020

From Robert Parker: "The deep ruby/purple-colored 1997 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard offers a gorgeous nose of incense, spice, pepper, cedar, and black fruits. Silky-textured, lush, and forward, with outstanding richness, this is a beautiful wine to drink over the next decade." (02/00) and previously from a barrell sample, 91-93 points: "The 1997 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard is more intense in the mouth. It boasts an opaque purple color, and a knock-out nose of blackberries, cassis, cedar, minerals, and a hint of flowers. Full-bodied, accessible (because of low acidity), it exhibits copious quantities of fruit, glycerin, and extract, with no hard edges. A silky-styled, hedonistic Syrah, it should drink well young yet age for 10-15 years. Syrah is king a The Ojai Vineyards. Even though the 1997s were made from higher yields than the 1996s, they are among the most concentrated and finest wines I tasted from Santa Barbara. All the wines made at Ojai are naturally made products - no fining or filtration, barrel-fermentation, malolactic in barrel, aggressive lees stirring, virtually no racking until assembling for bottling, and no acid additions."
