($62) Bright red-ruby color. Explosive aromas of raspberry, smoked meat and minerals, with hints of dried fruits; still a bit reduced. Suave and sweet on entry, then high-toned and expressive in the middle palate, with flavors of red berries, game, smoke and pepper. Lovely harmonious acidity contributes to the wine's inner-mouth aromatic character. Finishes with very sweet tannins and impressive spicy length. Proprietor/winemaker Roman Bratasuik has been picking his fruit a bit earlier since vintage 2001 to get fresher fruit flavors, but these tannins are still thoroughly ripe.

The beautiful 2002 Syrah Liandra Vineyard exhibits aromas of pepper, black fruits, acacia flowers, and subtle new oak. Full-bodied with an expansive mid-palate in addition to a gorgeously long finish, it is an elegant yet well-endowed Syrah to drink over the next 10-15 years.

Dark and juicy, not a blockbuster but nicely framed to show off its cherry, mint and subtle tar flavors. Goes for elegance. 350 cases imported.
