Maybe it's the snake venom, but this is seriously good Syrah. Blackberry and cherry pie aromas and flavors, with caramelized oak, mocha, chocolate macaroon and vanilla extravagances that turn richer and richer with every sip. Defines Syrah’s power and elegance with immediate, voluptuous pleasure.
The elegant, blue/purple-tinged, impressive 2004 Syrah Rattlesnake Rock exhibits a flowery character along with creme de cassis, full body, admirable fruit intensity, and good length.
Unabashed intensity and power are the hallmarks of this highly extracted bottling. Its wild berry, herby/fennel, burnt vanilla bean aromas are followed on the palate by a full-bodied, ripe-tasting effort whose youthful tannins demand a few years of cellar aging even for those who like their Syrahs to show their muscles. The rest of us will wait half a decade.
Distinctive for its bold blueberry, spice and licorice notes and its rustic, intense flavors of plum, smoky meat and cedar. Takes on complexity on the finish, and though there's no shortage of tannins, balances out in the end. Best from 2008 through 2012.
