Camatta Hills is a 600-acre vineyard planted across rolling hills near the town of Paso Robles on California's central coast.
The 2005 Greg Norman Camatta Hills Vineyard, Reserve Syrah is deep crimson in color. Rich aromas of ripe blackberry and cassis are enhanced by notes of wood smoke and spice. The elegant palate has a jammy quality and exhibits flavors of mulberry, black cherry and cocoa with cedar-like oak characters evident on the back palate. The wine has a firm structure with a beautiful balance of flavor, mouthfeel and fine ripe tannin.
"This flattering, soft, luscious 2005 Syrah Reserve Camatta Hills offers intriguing, smoky, blackberry fruit as well as a hint of barbecue spice. Outstanding density and a succulent, chunky style result in a sensual, fruit-laden wine with plenty of Syrah character. It is meant to be enjoyed over the next 3-4 years."
