- Closure: Cork
A dead-ringer (at least aromatically) for Guigal’s single vineyard Cote Rotie La Mouline, the 2002 Just For The Love of It is the greatest California Syrah I have yet tasted. A one-thousand case blend of 96% Syrah, 2% Grenache, and 2% Viognier, it is nearly equal parts Alban, Bien Nacido, and Stolpman fruit with a small amount from both Shadow Canyon and White Hawk. It boasts a provocative perfume of creme de cassis, toast, blackberries, licorice, barbecue spice, and exotic floral scents. Extremely full-bodied, with fabulous intensity, great purity, awesome length, and a finish that lasts over a minute, this classic is a must purchase. Already accessible, it will drink well for 10-15 years.

Multiple lots tasted of the 2002 Syrah at the winery all merited scores between 96 and 100. It is already a seamless, extraordinary classic with that fabulous Syrah bouquet of blackberry liqueur, melted licorice, truffles, vanilla, and a hint of smoky bacon. Dense, full-bodied, and already revealing flawless integration of wood, acidity, alcohol, and tannin, it should be prodigious stuff when released next year.
