1998 Ahlgren Vineyard Syrah, "Meeker Vineyard," Paso Robles AVA (California): According to the label, the wine is unfined and unfiltered, only 13.2 percent alcohol by volume, and was bottled in November 1999. The wine was aged at the winery until approximately six months ago, when I purchased it. The wine is brick red/mahogany in color, clean and clear; the bouquet shows layers of blueberry, smoky bacon, light earth, and spice; on the palate, there is mature fruit, berries, spice, vanilla; the palate is silky smooth, supple, well-balanced, and lush; the finish is long and lingering. Very fine indeed.
