Review

The 2000 Syrah Hop Barn Hill reveals painfully high extraction in addition to huge intensity of flavor. It is the biggest, richest, baddest Syrah I have tasted from California. How it will age is questionable, but it will certainly last 10-15, probably 20 years or more. Production from this vineyard will increase over the next few years, and hopefully, more will make it into commercial channels.
