Big juicy berry/blueberry nose. Soft, huge but still elegant. Lightish tannin and acid. So velvety! Not big alcohol? Full mouthfeel. Light spiciness. Still needs some aging. Finesse.

2005 Lagier Meredith Mount Veeder Napa Valley Syrah (Was $55) SKU #1036209 95 points Robert Parker: "I have always enjoyed the elegant, French-styled Syrahs from this winery, and this 2005 appears to be the finest they have yet produced. A beautiful deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by aromas of blueberries, black raspberries, spice, and ground pepper. Displaying a seamless integration of acidity, alcohol, tannin, and wood, winemaker/proprietor Carol Meredith has fashioned a brilliant Syrah offering substance and style. With full body, superb balance, a silky texture, and a fascinating mouthfeel, it can be drunk now as well as over the next 7-8 years." (12/07) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Enticing floral, jasmine, wild berry and blueberry scents fold over on the palate, giving this sleek, focused youngster a tight beam of fruit and a touch of sage and game meat. The tannins are ripe and integrated. Drink now through 2013. 940 cases made." (Web 07) 92 points from Wine & Spirits Magazine: "This vintage from Steven Lagier and Carole Meredith's vineyard on Mount Veeder is fuller and deeper in tone than the previous two. It needs several hours in a decanter to spread beyond the confines of new oak and ripe fruit, yielding brighter crushed peppercorn scents. Cellar and then serve it with roast boar." (02/08)
