Dry Creek Vineyard 1998 Vintner's Selection Syrah (Dry Creek Valley)

There's good deep fruit and licorice and smoke accents in this wine, but they are overrun by rampant oak that shows early and continues full-blown across the palate and onto the finish. There's weight, but not the depth or dimension we wanted. Tart raspberry flavors and smoked-meat accents strive to hold their own against the toasty oak tide through the long close.
