The 2007 Stolpman Estate Syrah has a medium to full body with fruity to INTEGRATED notes of black currant, bilberry, black cherry, coconut and vanilla. It has refined tannins (decant for 1 hour) and a long and smooth finish which is tangy (contribution from the Viognier). This wine should definitely be laid away for several years and can age/evolve for the next 10+ years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91 pts - I recommend this wine for those can cellar it. Tasted Dec/10.
