90pointsVidal 2004 Soler Syrah (Hawke's Bay)

A selection of the best lots, Vidal's Solar Syrah is a big step up from the regular bottling, not showing any overripeness and revealing more complexity. Subtle peppery notes kick-start the bouquet of cedar, vanilla and blackberries, while an intriguing herbal-peppery note winds through the flavors, adding nuance to the bold blueberry and raspberry mix. Creamy-textured, yet with a long, fresh, spice-tinged finish, this is a fine example of Hawkes Bay Syrah. Unfortunately, there are only 50 cases for the U.S.
