L'Ecole No. 41 Syrah Seven Hills Vineyard 2009

Member Review by jtryka:

The color is a bright garnet in the glass, with a bit of opacity. The nose is a blast of ripe black fruit, blackberries, cherries, layered over leather and oak, along with a sweet twang that is very reminiscent of a nice Bordeaux. The taste is not nearly as fruity as the nose would suggest, as you start with some mild berry and plum flavors that transition to some notes of tart cherry and dark chocolate mid-palate. There is a nice layer of minerality here as well, with some earthy notes. The finish is quite nice as the well developed tannins support a long, very dry finish that seems to last a minute or more.
