2010 Wrath Syrah, Doctor's Vineyard, Santa Lucia Highlands
Once again the Doctor's Vineyard has produced a spectacular Syrah.
As expected, the Doctor's Vineyard Syrah 2010 is dark and powerful. The aromatics range from white pepper and blueberries to smoked meat and leather. The palate is unctous, thick and balanced, making this Syrah both impressive and eminently drinkable.
