Saturated, with aromas of moist earth, prune, tightly woven oak and leather. It's not a funky, animal-driven style of Syrah; just the opposite, it's creamy and rich, with waves of chocolate and vanilla crashing alongside chunky black fruit. Seems apparent that the Nieto Senetiner winery found its stride in 2002; all its top wines are excellent.
