Best Syrah from the Sierra foothills. This 1998 is just amazing.

Riper than the 1998, a bit of heat shows in the finish (higher ABV than the 1998), primary fruit, should age still, I just worry about holding it in case the fruit drops and all that is left is alcohol.

Lovely 20-year-old Sierra Foothills Syrah, still some creamy notes from the oak, lovely dark fruit flavors, seems almost mature, still some primary fruit flavors, should last 5-10 more years easily.

Dark fruits and faint oak aromas, rich and just hitting its peak, beautiful creamy fruit notes but not as oaky as when it was younger, medium-long finish, just a touch of alcoholic heat in finish, lovely older foothills Syrah.
