($78) Deep ruby. Funky, wild aromas of raspberry liqueur and leather. Fleshy and impressively rich but less pristine than the Liandra. Here the acids are a bit less well integrated in the early going, and the firmly tannic finish is quite zingy, if a bit less pliant than that of the Liandra. Finishing notes of grilled vegetables and leather.

Remarkably, the 2002 Syrah Brookman Vineyard is even more compelling than the 2003. Still an infant, it exhibits a saturated blue/purple color as well as a marvelous perfume of blueberry and blackberry liqueur intermixed with scents of flowers, graphite, vanilla, coffee, and licorice. It possesses great intensity along with a wealth of fruit and glycerin covering substantial tannin, and a spectacular finish that lasts over a minute. Give it 3-5 more years of bottle age, and enjoy it over the following two decades.

Firm in texture, with a green edge to the anise-scented dark berry flavors, finishing with persistence and a real sense of elegance.
