Tasting Notes

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Deeply smoky nose displays powerful cassis, olive, cracked pepper and incense. Very sexy syrah, offering deep, sweet dark berry liqueur flavors, a velvety texture and a slow-building spicy quality. Became more energetic with air, picking up brighter red berry and mineral notes and finishing sweet. This really hangs onto the palate." (Nov/Dec '08) 92 points Robert Parker: "The structured, inky/purple-tinged 2006 Syrah Donna’s possesses the classic hallmarks of a top-notch Syrah, including flower blossom, blackberry, cassis, graphite, and earth characteristics along with beautiful purity. It will benefit from 1-2 years of bottle age, and will be drinkable over the following 7-8 years. From one of the Santa Rita Hills’ superb vineyard sites, the Melville wines are made by Greg Brewer."
