Readers should not confuse The Terraces with the 2003 Syrah Alder Springs Vineyard which is made from a completely different block of Syrah in the expansive Alder Springs Vineyard. The latter effort is a bigger wine (16.3% alcohol compared to 15.8% for The Terraces) boasting gorgeously opulent blackberry liqueur notes intermixed with notions of charcoal and licorice. Silky-textured fleshy and fat this cuvee is bursting with fruit glycerin and character. It should be drunk over the next 7-8 years.

Large-scaled and mouthfilling but not heavy. A big boy, finishing with major, horizontal tannins and strong, fresh black fruit flavors.
