What are you eating? Both of them look like they could do with a little more aging, so which you chose for tonight (if you only stick to one bottle) should depend on the answer to that question, and which varietal you are feeling like. The other one will taste better a few years from now, even if they are made to be 'drinkable' young.

And I'd open either of them at least a couple of hours before actually pouring. You'll definitely prefer the wine after it's opened up to straight from the bottle....

" dirkwdeyoung" haha that's what we ended up doing. We had filet mignon and potatoes and green beans.

And "dmcker" in regards to :

"And I'd open either of them at least a couple of hours before actually pouring. You'll definitely prefer the wine after it's opened up to straight from the bottle...."

Really I had know idea about this, I'm only one year over 21. But I like the wine buzz more than any other alcohol, pus it's more "classy" I guess.

How long should I open the bottle and leave it to air out before drinking it "dmcker". Thanks.

I'm relatively new to the concept of aging wines that I buy. I have bought that Bogle Petite Syrah and opened it right up without a thought. I might have to buy one and keep it for a few years...how long would you say to age those? Syrah has been losing favor with me and I wonder if it's because I'm finally noticing some of the issues a young wine can have.

blindedzeppelin-which was your favorite? Was the one that was 2 years older smoother?

The Bogle Petite Syrah was very good, but the Michael David Syrah was excellent..silky smooth...like butta (butter).

I would highly recommend the Michael David Syrah, bought it for $20, but it tasted like a $100 bottle.

Thanks again for the replies. Cheers.
