Santa Barbara Winery 1999 Syrah (Santa Ynez Valley)

An impressive, deep and darkly fruited nose shows smoke, leather, cinnamon, coconut, even mushroom notes. On the round, textured palate, earth and coffee accent ripe blackberry, plum and toast flavors. The finish—tart berry, citrus and licorice-tinged—shows good length and even tannins. Intense, youthful Syrah that will evolve for 2–4 years, and hold well through 2008. Top Value.
