Carlisle Knights Valley Pelkan Ranch Syrah 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very pretty on the nose with light, wispy floral, spice and red fruit aromas that seem a bit unformed. This is focused and decisive in the mouth with a core of tightly wound dark berry fruit that shows a bit of juniper spice and maintains a certain impression of sweetness even though the wine is dry. The balance here is excellent and while this is tannic, it doesn't feel aggressive. Inner mouth perfumes of wild plums and mulberry grow with air, adding notes of pink peppercorn and gentle red floral notes that extend over the finish. The finish does shut down fairly quickly,though the tannins are lovely, fine-grained and headed towards silky. This is going to be excellent in three years or so, everything is here and in perfect balance. Love this wine. It's powerful and precise with great fruit and mouth-cleansing austerity. 93pts
