Ortman Family 2002 Syrah (San Luis Obispo County)

This Central Coast Syrah shows its cool-climate terroir in the intense blast of white pepper that announces it. It's very tannic now, fiercely so, which inhibits the pleasure factor. Despite the cherry and blackberry fruit that shows up on the finish, I don't think it's an ager.
