Review

The 2005 Syrah Hop Barn Hill (16.5% alcohol) is a very limited cuvee, only 49 cases, hence the limited notes. Bacon fat notes intermixed with blackberry jam and cassis jump from the glass of this smoky, full-throttle, pedal-to-the-metal, inky/purple-colored wine. Drink it over the next 7-10 years
