There are only 400 six-packs of the 2002 Syrah Lorraine Vineyard. A flamboyant wine with a sensational nose of blackberry liqueur melted licorice acacia flowers crushed stones and a hint of blueberries it is seamlessly assembled with fabulous concentration an expansive full-bodied palate and an amazingly long finish that lasts well over a minute. Consume it during its first 10-12 years of life.
