2003 Syrah Dry Creek Valley

(not eligible for discounts)

The dark purple hue with red highlights shows the effect of ripening in a cool climate.  The intense aroma shows floral notes of lavender, high tone spices, cherries and blackberries.  The elegant mouth feel shows rich, well integrated tannins balanced with enough acidity to give the wine long life.
