This is probably a great wine for people who love complex acidic wines that offer many different tastes. This wine smells and tastes like a Cab Sav to me, and is a great wine for heavy steaks, etc... I however am not a fan, like my Syrah's to be more balanced and possess more silky tannins.

Rubinrot. Starke Aromen von roten Beeren, schwarzen Kirschen und schwarzem Pfeffer. Im Gaumen ein wohlschmeckender körperreicher Wein mit Geschmacksnoten von Vanille und Toast, sehr elegant mit einem langanhaltenden Abgang.

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: `The 2006 Alpha Syrah Apalta Vineyard is purple colored with an enticing nose of game espresso earth and blueberry. This leads to an elegantly-styled Syrah with spicy blue and black fruit flavors good depth and a fruit-filled finish. Enjoy it over the next 4-6 years.` (10/08) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: `Ruby-red. Energetic cherry-cola and raspberry aromas offer impressive clarity and a suave floral overtone. Sweet red and dark berry liqueur flavors are complemented by sexy vanillin oak and Asian spices with supple tannins carrying through the finish. Emphatically modern and quite seductive.`
