User Reviews for Arrowood Syrah Sonoma Valley le Beau Melange

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate Review Rated 91 The 2004 Syrah Saralee's Vineyard was aged in French oak for 18 months and bottled unfined and unfiltered. It exhibits plenty of blackberry, bacon fat, and exotic fruit aromas (a small quantity of Viognier is co-fermented with this cuvee). This lush Syrah is difficult to resist, but if you can keep your hands off of it, it should age well for 5-10 years. Wine Tasting Notes Distinctive and dramatic, this is a showcase wine. In the nose, concentrated aromas of plum, blackberry and licorice mix with a perfume of lychee nuts. Dense, ripe fruit, chocolate and roasted coffee bean flavors give the wine a captivating sweetness on the palate, reminiscent of a perfectly prepared cappuccino. With its formidable structure, chewy tannins and surprising depth, this wine integrates the essence, or terroir, of Saralee's Vineyard with the true varietal character of the fruit. It is a classic example of Syrahs beauty sweetly perfumed, voluptuously textured, and charmingly persistent.
