Seven Hills, Syrah, Walla Walla Valley, 2001

Rich ruby, bright meaty aromas with bright black fruit. Very appealing across-the-board with full spicy flavors highlighted with toasty oak and bittersweet  current fruit flavors. Spicy and a bit too oaky in the finish. Drink up over the next several years as there is more charm and power here than complexity. A very enjoyable wine.
