Melville Syrah Donna`s 2008, 750mL (WA98) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Melville Syrah Donna`s

750mL

Vintage: 2008
Region: US
Appellation: Santa Rita Hills, Santa Barbara

WA98
Rated 98 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `Absolutely prodigious, the 2008 Syrah Donna`s is aged completely in neutral French oak (as are its two siblings), and a generous amount of stems/whole clusters were used during the winemaking (approximately 80%). From a four-acre block in the Melville vineyard, it boasts an inky/purple color as well as a beautiful bouquet of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, graphite, and camphor, sensational concentration, a full-bodied mouthfeel, stunning purity and succulence, and a whoppingly long, seamless, 45-second finish. Drink this remarkable Syrah over the next 7-8+ years.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `This sensational Santa Rita Hills estate owned by the Melville family continues to turn out gorgeous wines that are made and looked after by Greg Brewer of the Brewer-Clifton winery. The prices are absurdly fair for such quality.`
