DescriptionOjai Syrah 1998
Roll Ranch Vineyard, Special Bottling Lot E.H.
Provenance: Property of a Los Angeles gentleman. Almost all wines were purchased winery-direct and sent directly to the client's professional wine storage facility where they have remained for decades. Many wines have been sampled from this cellar and all have been in spectacular condition.
"There are 200 cases of the 1998 Syrah Roll Ranch E.H. A special bottling, it tips the scales at a whopping 15% alcohol, and is the only Syrah Adam Tolmach puts in a Bordeaux-shaped bottle. The "EH" denotes that it was made from a specific clone (Estrella). This unique offering possesses extraordinary sweetness, an unctuous texture, and high tannin levels. Ripe, with roasted black fruit notes intermixed with asphalt, camphor, meat, and cassis/blackberries, this structured, backward wine requires 2-3 years of cellaring and should last for two decades." (94pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #139, Feb 2002)
