Ojai Vineyard 2011 Syrah, Solomon Hills Vineyard Special Bottling, Santa Barbara County, CA
Vinous.com rating: 93..."Deep ruby. A complex, intensely perfumed bouquet displays dark berry liqueur, fruitcake, olive paste and incense, with a zesty mineral quality adding lift and focus. Stains the palate with juicy blackcurrant and boysenberry flavors lifted by candied violet and black pepper. Shows excellent focus and thrust on the extremely long finish, with suave, even tannins coming in late."
