($50; from vines planted on shale soil with a limestone component) Deep, bright ruby. High-toned aromas of blackberry, licorice and tar. Dense but juicy, with firm-edged, sappy flavors of black fruits and spices. The limestone in the soil gives this syrah excellent mid-palate energy and lift. Still quite youthfully unevolved, finishing with firm, building tannins. This has the lowest pH of the Copain 2003 syrahs at 3.5, with alcohol of 14.8%. Like the pair of wines from Garys ' Vineyard, this will not be released until the spring of 2006.
