NEYERS SYRAH - 2002
From Hudson Vineyards in Napa Valley with 14.8% alcohol.
Dark color with meat, smoke, and perfume on the nose. An initial hit of white chocolate upfront is followed by flavors of smoked pork, black and blue fruit, cherry, Sweet Tarts, oregano, black currant and fresh plum on the finish. Incredibly smooth, juicy and complex.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
This is phenomenal Syrah. It now retails for an expensive $25 - $35 a bottle although I purchased it for much less years ago. The kind of wine that you won't forget. Very memorable with lots of evolution in the glass. Love this one!
