Koehler Syrah Santa Ynez Valley 2005

Member Review by RPerro:

2nd bottle of this wine. Still not pleased with the funky nose and bitter finish. Brought this bottle to a party and had several friends try it also, with 2 of the 3 giving similar reports. I had high hopes for this wine, and it failed to deliver. I am thinking I should have tried decanting it to see if the extra air would have improved this wine...

The nose on this wine is somewhat nasty. Nice ripe fruit and a great mouthfeel however. But the finish is quite bitter, and left a bad taste in my mouth for some time. Compared to the 2004 Stolpman Estate Santa Ynez Valley Syrah, the 2005 Koehler reminded me of a <$10 wine, not a 93 Parker-rated vintage. Disappointing.
