    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 harvest featured a normal spring followed by a warm summer, allowing the production of elegant wines of soft, mature tannins and the exceptional development of color in our Syrah. On the nose it shows both potency and elegance while on the mouth it presents its trademark softness with a persistent finish

    Of intense ruby red color, it has enchanting floral aromas accompanied by tobacco and leathery notes. On the mouth, it's powerful and full bodied to the palate, with soft and mature tannins and a very long and elegant finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Alpha Syrah is purple/black in color with an alluring nose of smoke, game, mineral, underbrush, and blueberry. Medium- to full-bodied, succulent and chewy on the palate, this lengthy effort is likely to evolve for 1-2 years but can be approached now.

    The Wine Advocate

    A ripe, up-front style, displaying lots of briar, anise, plum cake and fig flavors that push through the juicy, full-bodied finish. Very solid. Drink now.
