Member Review by aronowm2:

Lots of Asian spice, blackberry and peppercorn. Smooth and spicy. Terrific. Went great with Terriyaki chicken meatballs.

Talk about quality for the price!!! The fruit and elegant finish in this bottle are worth a lot more, and I'm hard pressed to hold on to it, though I feel like it will be even better in about 2 years. This is "good juice."

Vintage: 2005 07/20/2010

Varietals: 83% Syrah, 17% Petite Syrah Appellation: Santa Barbara County Alcohol: 14.6% Comments: Layers upon layers of aromatics, textures and flavors that seem to flow from the beginning to the end and back to the beginning again. We have been producing wine from these vineyards since 1997 and with each year the fruit just seems to get better and more complex. With that said, the 2005 vintage has gone further then any other Fess Parker has gone. The black fruits are darker; the red fruit brighter, the mid-palate is almost a diving board to a finish that just seems to go on and on. The essence of Central coast Syrah.
