Winemaker's Notes:

I'm happy to report that the syrah at this mountaintop estate overlooking Lake Hennessey is delivering on its early promise, showing superb breadth and complexity of flavor and more freshness than a wine at its level of pH (normally at least 3. 9) has any right to show. Colgin's collection of 2003 cabernet-based wines has turned out extremely well, and the young 2004s promise even greater richness. Winemaker Mark Aubert seeks to harvest in the high 26o-28o brix range, but noted that there was no watering back of the must in 2003. Deep ruby. Brooding aromas of black raspberry, mocha and licorice, with tobacco and saline nuances. Wonderfully sweet and broad in the mouth; really saturates the palate with dark fruit flavors. Very suave syrah, finishing with huge but lush tannins. This was still on its lees in early April and had never been racked. Offers great potential.
