Wine Advocate ReviewThe 2002 Petite Syrah Library Vineyard (85-year old vines) exhibits an opaque purple color followed by aromas of ink, graphite, minerals, licorice, smoke, and blackberry fruit. Powerful, dense, and excruciatingly tannic, it will be at its finest between 2008-2025.

Wine Advocate ReviewThere are 250 cases of the 2002 Petite Syrah Estate (14% alcohol). Made from cuttings taken from the Hayne Vineyard, this fabulous effort is one of the finest examples of this varietal I have recently tasted. Inky/blue/black/purple-colored to the rim, with a stunning bouquet of creosote, melted licorice, celestial black fruits, espresso roast, and white chocolate, this enormously-endowed wine possesses surprisingly ripe tannin. As it sits in the glass, violet and acacia flower-like scents also emerge. It has huge structure, but is oh, so backward. Do not touch a bottle for 8-9 years unless you want to do a roto rooter job on your upper GI tract. Fabulous! Anticipated maturity: 2011-2030+.
