"An iron fist in a velvet glove" is a fitting description for this 2001 Syrah from Gabrielli Vineyard. The wine has a dark, deep ruby-purple color with beautiful spice and peppery notes on the nose. Deep and extremely dense blackberry and black cherry flavors are complemented by an amazing silky, velvety texture, great structure and balance with a very long, full finish. This wine was made for big, hearty meals.
"Intense black fruits with classic Syrah notes of pepper and roasted meat. Great polish and structure given its density. A "big red" by any yardstick." - Bounty Hunter, Fall '05
