Hop Barn Hill Syrah 2005


Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar


Josh Raynolds




Saturated ruby. Explosively aromatic bouquet encompasses dark berries, black olive, cracked pepper, cured meat and musky floral scents; this is utterly captivating. Lush and seemingly sweet, with intensely concentrated blackberry and cassis flavors given depth by tapenade and bitter chocolate, all wrapped in velvety tannins. Finishes on a youthfully tannic note, with a hint of black tea. This carries its 16.3% alcohol effortlessly and is a superb example of syrah, from anywhere.
