Description

"A big step up over the Santa Barbara Syrah, the 2012 Syrah Rodney's Vineyard is more elegant and classy, with terrific creme de cassis, black raspberries, white chocolate and peppery spice. Seeing 20 months in 38% new French oak (the balance in 1- and 2-year-old barrels), it is fine, medium to fullbodied and layered, with a downright attractive, silky texture, while not being lean in the least. I like it now, but it will evolve nicely on its balance." ~ Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
