2002 JC Cellars Rockpile Vineyard Syrah

I figured that I probably waited too long to open this one, but I think I caught it right at the peak. It is much more intense than I remember.

The color is intensely deep, dark purple in color. The aromas include very ripe blackberry and blueberry, with a just a touch of vanilla. The flavors include a lot of very ripe dark fruit.  And the finish is very hot. There is a lot of alcohol in this one.

This one scores 20 out of 20 points for me!
