Neyers Syrah Napa Valley 2008
Editorial Reviews for Neyers Syrah Napa Valley
A nice nose with some sweet, woody spices but also fine plum and slightly candied dark cherry fruit. With air this really picks up a lot of candied ginger though, a touch of game and roasted green herb and sassafras edge are lurking – Very fluid in the mouth, fairly noticeable acids and polished tannins support a big somewhat spicy bitter cherry fruit and root beer toned mid-palate. Rather restrained and almost lean, lets say focused on the backend with a very nice, crisp finish, that reveals a bit of wood tannin splinteriness on the finish. Perhaps a touch simple and with a short finish but fresh and balanced 89pts
Ruby red color. Aroma is bright, slightly heated with a nice scent of blackberry jam. Flavors are potent, very bright ripe cherries with tannins hiding away until the finish, where they feature prominently alongside black licorice and leather.
