Liberty School Syrah 2004, Paso Robles California

This syrah is like a left jab to the face, the aromas of ripe fruit assaulting your nose before you know what hit you... then another quick jab follows with plums. Next, a right cross to the mouth with smoky flavors, and just before you fall to the canvas you're thinking fresh flowers and lingering black pepper.

We had this bottle at Il Poeta with an appetizer of Buratta. It was a knockout.
