Neyers Hudson Vineyards Syrah 1999
Wine AdvocateThe potentially outstanding 1999 Syrah Hudson Vineyard boasts an opaque black/purple color that suggests an unctuous texture. Aromas of pepper, blackberry liqueur, and creosote emerge from this full-bodied, silky-textured, dense, concentrated Syrah. Approximately 40% was aged in new French oak, and the remainder in older wood. While there is firm tannin in the finish, this admirable Syrah possesses a gorgeously viscous texture as well as gobs of fruit and glycerin.
Wine SpectatorSpicy and intense, with a Rhône-like character to its white pepper, beef, herb and espresso bean flavors.
