Rating: ***+ 2004 Longoria Clover Creek Vineyard Syrah, Santa Ynez Valley, CA

Review: This single vineyard syrah shows as a deep extracted red in the glass, with heavy glycerin fingers drooling along the sides. Nose is a fruity deep blueberry. On the palate, the blueberry grows brighter and spicier, with additional cherry notes coming in. The finish is long though still bright. A very promising wine that seems to need just a bit more time to settle into its skin.
