Delicious blackberry fruit and some sweet syrup. Strong tannins with blackberry and black olive.
Jammy nose and a bit floral. Noticeable blueberries and flowers. Very acidic and floral a bit interesting for a syrah from Cali.
Very toasty and jammy, concentrated fruits with a little maple ham thing going on. Is that toasted marshmallows on the finish? Holy oak treatment, Batman!
Dark berries and chocolatey taste.
External Reviews for V. Sattui Winery Syrah Napa Valley
Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Favoring ripe blackberries and plum jam in focus with a touch of milk chocolate for good measure, the rich but somewhat tight aromas of this full-bodied wine are followed on the palate by a fleshy and somewhat rounded entry and by a tannin-laden, hot-edged finish. Deep fruit saves the wine from itself and allows it to be a good mate to savory lamb roasts.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
