Melville Syrah Santa Rita Hills Sta. Rita Hills High Density 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is loaded with dark fruit nuances of boysenberry kirsch, plum and cherry. A vast aromatic collection of earth and flower remind us of iron, lavender, dried herbs, sea salt and fresh farm. Other compelling notes drift towards smoked bacon and peppercorns. This motley grouping weaves across your palate creating an exotically vibrant and seductive wine that has a tremendously rich finish.

Medium dark purple-red, translucent. Almost primordial, the nose is full of damp earth, terroir, currants, boysenberry, and rhubarb. Very plush and soft on the palate, this is still tasting very fresh-a mouthfilling syrah that's all about dark blac... Cory Gowan.
