2000 Unti Estate Syrah (Dry Creek) (7/03)

A big-boy Syrah to be sure, in the ultra-ripe Dry Creek Zin mode. Seriously big wine, but seriously tasty, if not very Syrah-tasting. Big blackberry fruit, a rather precarious volatility, lots of kitchen spices, and well-calculated oaking. We need to make more wine like this priced like this.
