2006 Relic Wines Syrah Alder Springs Vineyard - USA, California, North Coast, Mendocino County (11/7/2009)
Decanted 2 hours, enjoyed over the following 3. Deep rich color. Smoky, black fruits dominate. Still tight with 5 hours of air. Nice fruit, spice, pepper, acidity peek through, gritty, earthy tannins. As with most Alder Springs offerings, this bottle has all the attributes and potential for excellence down the road. Give it a very healthy decant if you’re planning on enjoying this one over the next couple of years.
