    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine is brimming with full-bodied flavors of jammy, ripe black fruit, dried cranberries, and cherry preserves. Winemaker Francoise Peschon notes: The addition of Viognier adds an aromatic floral intrigue and softens the massive tannins in this intensely flavored wine. The notes of allspice, cinnamon, and hints of white pepper give a lasting spicy finish to the huge flavors and mouthfilling texture. It is intensely concentrated and surprisingly supple. This wine should age effortlessly for 20 years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The spectacular 1995 Syrah Eisele Vineyard is one of the greatest New World Syrahs I have ever tasted. Approximately 300 cases were made, and it is even better out of bottle than it was in barrel. The color is an opaque purple. The bouquet offers explosive notes of wood fire, licorice, jammy blackberries and cassis, in addition to the unmistakable scent of black truffles/licorice. Full-bodied and rich, with sensational flavor extraction, remarkable harmony, and a 35+-second finish, this is profoundly great Syrah. While it is approachable, it will not reach full maturity for another 7-8 years; it will keep for 3 decades. Wow!

    Smooth, rich and elegant, with polished currant, leather, anise, earth and mineral flavors that are complex and concentrated, sophisticated and long.
