Alcina Cellars Syrah les Madres Vineyard Los Carneros 2005

Member Review by quaffable:

Inky dark purple in color and rich with the blackberry and cassis flavors that you would expect from the varietal, though you also notice a wonderful blueberry and vanilla bouquet. This wine is medium bodied and slightly softer on the palate that many of of its California counterparts. It reminds me a bit more of its rhone cousins than other syrahs of this area. The wine maker has been in the business of buying, selling, collecting and making wine for many years and is part of a co-op. He buys fruit from nearly a dozen of the most reputable sources across California. I love drinking his wines alone or pairing with seasonal dishes.
