POINTS out of 100 - 2004 Richard Perry Napa Valley
"A stunning value in world-class Syrah
is this effort from Richard Perry. Floral, tar, camphor, blackberry,
and cassis aromas jump from the glass of this dense ruby/purple-colored
2004. Velvety-textured, opulent, and full-bodied with layers of fruit
and depth, it should drink nicely for 5-8 years."

2001 Richard Perry Syrah
A gorgeous Syrah made from the southeast sector of NapaValley at an
800 foot elevation (the dominant soils are white volcanic ash and rocky
red volcanic deposits), this 325 case cuvee was aged 18 months in French
oak, of which 40% were new. Smoky fried bacon aromas intermingled with
blackberry and currant fruit, tar and a hint of toasty vanilla jump
from the glass of this dense, ruby/purple-colored 2001. Rich, expensive
and medium to full-bodied, with well-integrated wood, acidity, tannin
and alcohol. It will drink well for 5-7 years.
Perry Syrah Napa Valley Perry Vineyards 2001
Elegant, rich and
deeply concentrated with direct spicy plum and pepper notes, finishing
with a twang of cigar box and espresso, with flavors that keep on unfolding.
Drink now through 2007. 250 cases made.
- 1997 Richard Perry Cabernet Sauvignon weaves together a pretty
array of ripe plum, currant, black cherry and mocha-flavored oak, turning
smooth and supple, with polished tannins and wonderful length.
- 1998 Richard Perry Cabernet Sauvignon is very focused and
complex, with rich and supple flavors of currant, mocha and coffee,
wrapped in firm tannins.
