Doyenne 2005 Grand Ciel syrah

Another early WAwineman classic short, 1st posted on September 21, 2008:

The second vintage of this Estate syrah, a glass of this exposed a deep, decadent purple. My tasting notes revealed a soft bouquet of purple flowers, roses and lavender that evolved to black fruit, black pepper and raspberries. Tail trail of 10+ seconds–it basically unpacks its luggage on your palate. Rated: 94. Value: $75. Syrah 97%, viognier 3% (from Ciel du Cheval). 93 WE. Red Mountain AVA. Grand Ciel Vineyard.
This is WAwineman on the road…still uncorked, uneducated but not uncouth.
