Kempton Clark 2001 Petite Syrah (PB)
This California offering has rich garnet color with fresh cherry and raspberry bouquet. In the mouth it is again rich with a touch of vanilla, and anise with strong tannins. Within a few minutes of air, a little bit of dill emerges right before swallowing–nice! After a half hour or so, tannins are still pretty tightly wound but the dill gets stronger. This wine was a close out special for $8! If I didn’t live an hour away from where I purchased it, I’d run out and buy more. (NW) and (Billy) are both still in town and I trust they will also be putting thier review up as well. Raise a glass!
