2007 Syrah, Rodgers Creek Vineyard, Sonoma Coast
Vol. 37, No. 1
Medium-dark ruby; attractive, forward, intense, complex, black cherry and blackberry jam aroma with notes of graphite, dark chocolate, and bacon fat; full body; big, rich, textured, concentrated, very ripe blackberry fruit flavors with firm acidity and notes of sage, black pepper, and charred oak; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Very highly recommended.
