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.
