Pride Mountain Vineyards Syrah Sonoma County 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Does wine really get this dark purple!? Extremely concentrated, spicy grapey and as dense as ink, the ripeness of this Syrah makes it look like blackberry pancake syrup. Massive extract tattoos the tongue with red cherry and blackberry flavors and fine tannins that linger in the finish. Neutral oak was favored for aging this 100% varietal mountain-grown Syrah.

Super opaque in color. On the nose there was a enticing sweet boysenberry, blueberries and pure vanilla extract-american oak quality I really liked. The palate exposed super deep plush & dark fruits as previously mentioned in a sea of smooth tannins. There was a flowery quality present as well as some pepper notes. The finish was long and sweet. A velvet fist wrapped in an iron glove. (waiting to put this expression in words for years).I gotta say, I have had this a few times and this showed the best yet. I am glad I held onto my bottles. Perfect served during family BBQ. It was a hit amongst the the non-winos as well. There was something for everyone.

Mildly gamy, a touch smoky and simply brimming with sweet, caramelized, oaky spice, Pride Mountain's latest Syrah goes for complexity and depth while keeping overt fruitiness fairly quiet. It is full and fleshy in feel without the heaviness that some... Connoisseur's Guide. A Syrah wine from California in USA. 2003 Pride Mountain Vineyards Syrah 750ml
