The 2008 LYBRA, a well priced Syrah, was aged for 15 months in 2nd and 3rd pass oak. Although the oak is still apparent, extra time in bottle has shown it to be integrating?one reason why I?m revisiting it. It may always have a bit of a creamy note for its useful life span, but it is increasingly well balanced. It is not a wine that impresses with either depth or power, but it still needs 30 minutes of air. I liked it far better then and it began to show a little character and class after an inoffensive beginning. This has always been a wine that sneaked up on me. Beautifully balanced?although it does also tighten a bit with air, surprisingly--it is quite tasty and charming, a nice value point. It won?t be a long term wine and for my money it is at peak now, although it should hold decently. Drink now-2017.
