Review

The 2006 Syrah Hop Barn Hill, from the rocky slopes near the winery, is another northern Rhone look-alike, with notes of bacon fat, roasted meats, and bouquet garni. Dense and full-bodied, with hints of black olive, camphor, and earth, this is an intriguing but backward style of Syrah that needs several years of bottle age and should drink nicely for 10-15+ years.
