DOMAINE ALFRED SYRAH - 2001
California Central Coast Syrah with 15% alcohol.
Deep purple color with black currant, black fruit and huge black pepper on aromas. Flavors of black currant, plum, cloves, baking spices, tart berries and a big tannic finish. Balanced, smooth, good body and lots of finesse. Built like a Cotes du Rhone.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
A very well-made Syrah. Great length and style with excellent warm spice notes. Retails for around $24 . Drinking really well right now.
