Wine tasting note: 1996 Edmund Saint John Syrah California

1996 Edmund Saint John Syrah California

3rd Mar 1999 GBP12 USA Table Red

Opaque red/purple to red.
Dense, closed, slightly dank nose with spicy, cedary notes.
Medium bodied with fresh cherries, black pepper and charred oak flavours.
Good tannins and acidity, but slightly coarse and lacking in the middle - needs another 2 to 3 years to develop.
