Starry Night's 2002 Russian River Valley Syrah shows an opaque ruby core that fades to a purple/ruby rim. The nose is treated to aromas of blackberry, raspberry and vanilla. Along with hints of clove, the wine shows a touch of gamey spirit akin to a nice Rhone wine. The flavors follow through to the palate. Its ample body has integrated tannins that are lightly drying and mate well with the fresh acidity. The wine's mellow consistency in the mouth, along with its pungent intensity in the nose, parts with a generous finish. Overall, this vintage is a good solid Syrah.
