Ojai Syrah Santa Rita Hills Melville 2002
95 points Robert Parker: The inky/blue/purple-colored 2002 Syrah Melville Vineyards boasts a stunning perfume of crushed rocks, white flowers, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, a viscous texture, good underlying acidity that provides vibrance as well as delineation, and a spectacularly rich, multidimensional mid-palate and finish. This formidable Syrah is approachable, but will benefit from 1-2 more years to develop further. It should last through 2016+. (Aug 2004)
