92 points "2004 Syrah, Dry Creek Valley - 92 In 2005, approximately 270 new wineries opened in California. Terlato Family Vineyards was one of them. As start-ups go, however, this new winery was hardly new. Its owners, the Terlato family, have been major players in the wine world for more than 50 years. Its director of winemaking, Doug Fletcher, has been making fine wine in California over four decades. You could say that this new Syrah coming from this "new" winery was generations in the making. This is a Syrah that's fresh, lean, concentrated and flavorful. My style. This 2004 Syrah is obviously very young, and will benefit from time. It opens slowly in the glass, its aroma ultimately showing concentrated notes of blackberry, herbs, spiciness and a slight note of smoky oak. The palate impression is fairly full-bodied and soft but with a depth of fresh acidity and a lean frame of firm but not aggressive tannin. The wine's flavors are ripe--but not at all overripe--small, black fruits and spiciness. They are not intense; obviously the intent here was to craft a complete wine, not just a wine with a flavorful hit. The wine carries long in the mouth, and its long finish shows concentrated black fruit. - By Mary Ewing Mulligan - 4/10/2007 "
