Deep Sea White Hawk Vineyard Santa Barbara Syrah 2008
I chronicled my discovery of this wine and what I learned about this producer and label in an earlier blog post.
Consistent with earlier notes. Dark inky purple, full bodied, thick, concentrated, chewy black and blue berry fruits with a layer of alcohol, tones of caramel and vanilla, turning to hints of black pepper and mint on a moderate tannin laced lingering finish.
In its seventh year, its not as balanced and polished as it was earlier hence losing a point, but still tasty and pleasant every day sipping, indeed. And with a good QPR.
RM 90 points.
