Truchard Syrah Carneros 2004
Floral aromas of ripe plum, cassis, and blackberry; highlighted with vanilla, earth, and white pepper. The mouth is rich - layered with flavors of black cherry, berry jam, and red currants; followed by mineral and cracked black pepper. Mouth-filling tannins provide an opulent finish of fruit and spice.
Not as impressive as the last bottle. Still, quite a nice drinking wine. Had with vegetable lasagne. Mixed well with the cheese and tomato sauce. Nice fruit, but not quite as much depth as previous bottle, and not as much secondary flavor. Decent QPR, so I can't complain...
Very impressive Syrah, especially following the 2004 Sequel. Nice and peppery, with black raspberry fruit and earthiness.
