Failla Syrah Sonoma Coast Estate 2008
[94 pts Steven Tanzer] Bright deep ruby. Sexy Cote-Rotie-like aromas of black raspberry bacon fat brown spices and black pepper. Lush sweet and broad with lively ripe acidity framing the deep flavors of blueberry pepper and spices. Finishes chewy tactile and long with substantial dusty tannins. A fascinating syrah from a vineyard planted in 1998 at a very dense meter-by-meter spacing.
