Oriel 2004 Solona Syrah (Napa Valley)

With tough, astringent tannins and crisp acidity, this Syrah is pretty locked down, even though it's nearly 4 years old. It has the generous fruit typical of Napa Valley, with polished black currant, black cherry, pomegranate and orange flavors, but those tannins put a straitjacket on the wine. Could come around in a few years, but it's hard to tell.
