Review

The extraordinary 2002 Syrah Hop Barn Hill (160 cases, 15.6% alcohol) possesses a smoky, bacon fat nose reminiscent of a Cote Rotie. An inky blue/purple-colored wine with blackberry liqueur notes intermixed with violets, pepper, and camphor, this is a huge, full-bodied, smoky, concentrated effort with undeniable appeal. It is amazing to think this wine is from relatively young vines. It should drink well for 10-12 years at the minimum.
