The 2008 is a more focused wine than previous vintages, meaning that the structure with higher acidity really brings the piercing fruit right to your palate. While I use Northern Rhone as a model, the 2008 shows the greatest similarity to its Old World counterparts. Complex, integrated, and balanced, this bottling exhibits the dried herb, beef blood, and roots synonymous with the Odyssey vineyard. This vintage also shows brown spices, Cardamom, black cherry and a hint of espresso.

Wine Advocate

Green, herbal notes dominate over the fruit in the 2008 Syrah Odyssey. This shows good persistence, but the vegetal notes are hard to escape. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2013.

Score: 86. —Antonio Galloni, August 2011.
