The inky/blue/purple-colored 2002 Syrah Melville Vineyards boasts a stunning perfume of crushed rocks white flowers blueberry and blackberry liqueur a viscous texture good underlying acidity that provides vibrance as well as delineation and a spectacularly rich multidimensional mid-palate and finish. This formidable Syrah is approachable but will benefit from 1-2 more years to develop further. It should last through 2016+. One cannot say enough about the commitment to excellence exhibited year after year by Adam Tolmach.(Release date 4/05)Tel. (805) 649-1674

Superripe dark berries spice cake and chocolatey oak on the nose. Supple ripe and rich withflavors of dark berries chocolate and bacon fat complicated by an exotic dried fruit component. Finishes with a flavor of raw berries and some chocolatey oak. Very dry and adult in an Old World way.
