Lava Cap 1998 Reserve Syrah (El Dorado)

This medium-weight wine is zippy, lively and has nice structure. Tart cranberry, fig and briary-butterscotch aromas don't adequately prepare you for the lush blackberry, caramel and chocolate flavors. The creamy, though slightly tannic (one reviewer called it “Rhônish”) finish fades slowly, with a metallic-mineral note on the back palate.
