It's #AgedWineTuesday today. Here is a delicious one from California.

This 20 year old has a gorgeous nose.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with black fruits, cedar, vanilla, licorice, earth, green olives, spices, peppercorn, leather, tobacco and green vegetables.

Nice finish with spices and tangy raspberries.

What a great nose on this Syrah. Reminds me of a Napa Syrah.

Fruits are on the decline, by now, but it is still interesting and enjoyable by itself. Good with food too.

What a score.

I paired it with short ribs with truffled mushrooms.

12.4% alcohol by volume.

90 points.
