Forth 2003 La Rousse Syrah (Dry Creek Valley)

Cellar Selection

Even at four-plus years, this interesting Syrah needs a little more time to show its best because, while it's very good now, it's tight in tannins that shut the palate down. Decanting will help, and so will big, rich foods such as duck and lamb. But the cherry, blackberry, white pepper and sweet leather flavors will blossom after 2008, and the wine should hold and improve through 2011.
