B. Kosuge Hudson Vineyard Syrah 2005
2005 was a milder vintage than 2004, and I picked my block about two weeks later than the previous year. The wine is perhaps a bit firmer and darker than the 2004, but it shares the vivid range of aromas, including black olives, roasted meat and Earl Grey tea.
Presents a strong beefy-tomato, spicy-wild berry flavor profile and stays with that, repeating the flavor themes on the finish. Drink now through 2012. 225 cases made.
