Kendall Jackson Jackson Estate Alisos Hills Syrah 2004
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Barbara|
The Alisos Hills vineyards are a wild place-where mule deer, wild boar and bobcats roam the riparian corridors. The wild character of this region shows up in the intense wines grown here and creates a depth of character that is unique to California.
Dark and soft, this Syrah has an enormous depth of fruit. The cherry liqueur and pie filling, mocha, cola, plum and gingerbread flavors finish dry. Loses a few points due to a touch of raisiny, pruny overripeness, which makes the wine heavy.
