($55) Dark red-ruby. Expressive, nuanced nose combines blueberry pie, bacon fat, mocha, creamed corn and roasted meat. Then tightly wound and penetrating, with firm-edged acids keeping the rather powerful dark berry and mint flavors under wraps today. Finishes with a very firm tannin/acid spine that calls for at least a year or two of patience.

Bob Foley continues to demonstrate a sure hand with Syrah grown in their Sonoma vineyard's gravelly/quartz soils. The medium to full-bodied 2003 Syrah offers fresh acidity (thanks to the high mountain elevation) as well as abundant blackberry and floral characteristics. Drink this beauty over the next 5-6 years.

This is an immense and firmly tannic young Syrah that's also blessed with lively acidity. The core blackberry and blueberry flavors are shaded by hints of beef, sage, herb and tobacco. It all comes together nicely on the finish, though it clearly needs cellaring to soften the rough edges. 600 cases made.
