TN: 2006 Lillian Winery Syrah (USA, California, Central Coast, Santa Barbara County)

  • 2006 Lillian Winery Syrah - USA, California, Central Coast, Santa Barbara County (10/20/2010)
    Had open in bottle for 4hrs. WOW, first taste, and I knew this was going to be good! Beautiful nose of creme de cassis, dusty white pepper, coffee. Big, yet smooth and polished in the mouth…gobs of crushed blackberries, cherries, cassis, blueberry fruit…intense dusty spices, florals(cherry blossom, lavender, creme de cassis), creamy sweet smoky oak, licorice, some meat as well. I love the darkness of the fruit, and the spicy florals…well balanced, with a great feel. Should gain even more with a few years. Love this! (94 pts.)

Another convert…

Yea…you had me with the '05 Blue!

Where did you pick up the Lillian? I bet you it would have tasted even better with two friends at passion fish???

Hey, you are still alive!

Winebid $60…also was offered the '07 from the Winery, which of course I jumped on!
