Latour Vineyards Syrah Mt. Veeder 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The inky purple color hints at the depth and richness of this Syrah. Classic aromas of pancetta and black pepper are followed by plum and blackberry jam flavors and a lingering finish. It's like a ballet dancer -- muscular and powerful yet elegant. Pair it with grilled lamb rubbed with rosemary and enjoy.

On the nose, peppery meatiness with a bit of forest floor and latent dark berry. On the front of the tongue, a good mix of red and dark berries and smoke leading to a mid-palate of good juicy dark berries with a hint of raisins and bacon and a touch of eucalyptus,and on the back of the palate a mix of peppered meats, dark berries and eucalyptus, and just a hint of vanilla and butter. This wine has a seemingly never-ending peppery finish. While the tannins in this wine are fairly smooth, there is enough presence to indicate that this wine still has quite a few years left to it.
