Winemaker's Notes

"Impressive, powerful, rich, and concentrated is the 2004 Syrah The Bulladoir, a blend of 96% Syrah and 4% Viognier. An opaque blue/purple color is accompanied by sumptuous aromas of barbecue smoke, creme de cassis, blackberries, and camphor. It makes a huge tactile impression, yet remains balanced and is neither over the top nor pruny/raisiny. Drink this beauty over the next 10-12+ years."

Rich, smooth, viscous, full-bodied, blackberry jam forward, with a dollop of creme, vanilla, glycerin, and an amazing touch of cedar. Long, smooth finish. Simply outstanding!
