The 2008 Alpha Syrah is purple/black in color with an alluring nose of smoke, game, mineral, underbrush, and blueberry. Medium- to full-bodied, succulent and chewy on the palate, this lengthy effort is likely to evolve for 1–2 years but can be approached now.

A ripe, up-front style, displaying lots of briar, anise, plum cake and fig flavors that push through the juicy, full-bodied finish. Very solid. Drink now.

Opens nicely, with hints of olive, earth, rubber and leather. The palate is juicy and lively, while flavors of coconut, toast and black fruit meld together in good fashion. A fresh, clean style of Syrah that’s forward but not hard or tannic.
