1999 T-Vine Syrah Contra Costa County


Surprisingly fresh and lively for a 20 year old wine. The color is a light cherry red with no browning. The nose is faintly spicy. But the palate is youthful and spry. Bright cherry fruit, fully resolved tannins, nice acidity and fine balance. A bit of tarragon. Good length on the finish which is full of fruit. Nothing complex about this wine, but still bright and fun to drink. 13.4% ABV. B
