93pointsMorgan 2005 Tierra Mar Syrah (Santa Lucia Highlands)

Pepper, acidity and tannins are the stars of this young, unresolved Syrah. Under all that is a solid core of blackberries and blueberries that have a slight baked quality, like fruit in a pie. The wine needs time to knit together. A blend mainly of Morgan's cool Double L Vineyard and the fine Paraiso Vineyard, at the warmer, opposite end of the appellation, it should hit its stride in mid-2009.
