Caught this one at its peak. I didn’t think the Ventana Vineyards could be as good as the pre-2000 Paso Robles Syrah, but this one is. Bold, fantastic balance of fruit, spice, acidity and tannins.

Winemaker's comment: Deep & dark. Classic Syrah bouquet w/ bright, spicy flavors. Rich & complex. Fine finish. Unfined & unfiltered.

Quite powerful fruit and acidity. Aged well, lots of sediment required decanting. Some funk on the first night, gone on the second. Good, but not as good as the Paso Robles Syrah of previous years.
