2005 Spencer Roloson Syrah Madder Lake Vineyard, Clear Lake
90 points: Robert Parker/Wine Advocate; Flavors of crushed blue-black fruit
Big, dark and gripping, this wine has pure fruit essence in the nose combined with crushed stone and garrigue notes that reach out and shake you!! High toned blue-blackberry fruit are supported by plush mouth presence and a long pure finish. All the usual suspects are present: crushed black fruit and sweet textured tannins support this ringer for Cornas. Enjoy!
Style: Full, Bold
