Reply to "TN REQ- Melville 2000 Syrah"

Top Ten, assuming your response is to the original thread, I agree that for ~$28, Jazin should try it for himself. It isn't going to be a complete waste of money, because it is good wine, just a bit atypical of what most people would expect of a Lampoc area syrah. Beckmen, for example, is relatively close by and their syrahs could not be more different. I do continue to strongly feel that comparisons to "Cote Rotie" are way off the mark. Cote Roties do tend to be more elegant and intensely focused in comparison to the Southern Rhones and Cornas, but they don't tend to be relatively unstructured. Again, I'm a big fan of Melville and have previously recommended the '00 Estate Pinot. I suspect future Melville Syrahs will be a bit better and also think this release will reward a little time in bottle.
As for your last question, "Kick out the Jams!", and say hello to Iggy for me.
