Eos Reserve Petite Syrah 2005
The EOS Petite Syrah from the Private Reserve range has aromas of smoky oak with hints of molasses and blueberry waft from the glass with layers of blackberry and chocolate. The richness of the dark berries and baker’s chocolate explode into the mouth while the velvety dark textures of the molasses glide over the palate. The wine has an extended finish of spice lingers with hints of smoke.
This was described to me as 'big', and the menu made mention of 'black pepper' and a 'mocha-spice finish' -- but I found it smoothly quaffable.
Very big and rich and delicious. Paso Robles just produces good wines!
Someone gave us this bottle and told us we would be pleasantly surprised at how good it was. We liked it so much we ordered 10 bottles. It has now become a favorite of ours.
External Reviews for Eos Reserve Petite Syrah
This 2005 flagship offering opens with heady aromas of raspberry, blackberry, earth and spice. Luscious, up-front berry flavors lead to a sublime, velvety structure, with a big, rounded mid palate of chocolate and earth. The finish is dry, with lingering tannin and notes of dark baker's chocolate and rich spices.
