These convictions are manifest in the 2004 Castagna Genesis Syrah. The nose is vibrant and perfumed. The aromatic violets come through on the palate, together with a complex set of berry fruits, blackberry, raspberry, red cherry. A thin layer of chocolate blends into the fruit. This is a female, medium bodied wine, very balanced, with enticing tannins and acidity in support. The wine expands on the finish, like a good Burgundy.
This wine drinks beautifully now. I loved it.
