Ojai Syrah Santa Rita Hills Melville 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

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)

Full bright ruby. Superripe dark berries, spice cake and chocolatey oak on the nose. Supple, ripe and rich, withflavors of dark berries, chocolate and bacon fat complicated by an exotic dried fruit component. Finishes with a flavor of raw berries and... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Syrah wine from California in USA. 2002 Ojai Syrah Melville Vineyard 750ml
