Review

The 2002 Syrah Hop Barn Hill was aged in 100% new French oak, which was barely noticeable. It is a syrup of Syrah offering blackberry liqueur characteristics intermixed with hints of pepper, white flowers, and licorice. Full-throttle, intensely concentrated, pure, and multidimensional, this is a knock-out Syrah. Sadly, only 160 cases were produced.
