2004 Eric Kent Dry Stack Vineyard Bennett Valley Syrah

2004 Eric Kent Dry Stack Vineyard Bennett Valley Syrah Plum and blackberry fruit, loads of pencil lead with some tobacco leaf. White pepper, hints of tomato compote, iodine and espresso. Nicely structured with some mildly drying tannins and moderately crisp acidity. Tight around the edges but there is a narrow plush center that lends a creamy milk chocolate character to this wine. Slightly reticent on the nose but it opened up with time. Medium to full bodied. Nicely balanced. N 8 P 8+ S 9 C 8+ B 8+ = 92+/100
