Terry Hoage Vineyards Syrah Paso Robles the Hedge 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Terry Hoage "The Hedge" Syrah Paso Robles 2005 : WINE ADVOCATE REVIEW: 91 POINTS An impressive offering is the 2005 Syrah The Hedge. Its dense ruby/purple hue is accompanied by abundant quantities of cassis, blackberries, licorice, smoke, and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, deep, and pure with a voluptuous texture, velvety tannins, and low acidity, it should drink well over the next 5-6 years. WA # , #172 (Aug 2007) Drink 2007 - 2013 Robert ParkerNVWE NOTES: From its dark purple color, complex aromatics and deep mid-palate richness, through its polished and lingering finish, this is an impressive and satisfying Syrah. On the nose, scents of black raspberry, dark cherry and black fig are counter-pointed by savory notes of black and white pepper, Oolong tea and crushed rose in a sweet-natured display, while black raspberry, brandied cherry, pepper and rose are the main ingredients that enliven its brightly youthful flavors. Airing brings further rewards, as tobacconist shop spice notes add depth, and the flavors grow ever more opulent, while retaining their appealing zest. Surprisingly soft in tannin for all its gutsy richness, it should be mature in just a few more years. 750 cases produced.TERRY HOAGE "THE HEDGE" SYRAH PASO ROBLES 2005

Our 2005 Syrah is powerful and layered with blackberry, cassis and melted licorice, truffle, and dark chocolate aromas and flavors. The lingering perfumed finish has integrated acidity, velvety tannins and a forever finish. 90% new French oak 10% second year oak using a combination of Francois Frere (3 yr. Bertranges and Allier Forest), Taransaud, Seguin Moreau, Saury and Boutes. 750 cases produced
