2003 Barrel 27 Syrah - Dark ruby purple in color, with a solid nose of dark berry fruit, road tar, tobacco, and a hint of eucalyptus. It has a velvet texture on the mouth and a crisp finish. How do Myers and Russell do this for under $20 USD? No idea, but this is a little known gem from Paso that some lucky winos discovered on first release. Buy this one buy the case. Cheers
Unlike many Shiraz/Syrahs this Barrel 27 reveals itself with the very first taste. Pungent yet not overpowering flavor with hints of tobacco and spice come through right away. It also has a softer sweet element to balance it out. This tastes like a $100 bottle of red, so for $16.99 you're getting an excellent price. It was highly recommended by my favorite sommelier in Beverly Hills and I haven't bought another Syrah since! I like to pair it with an Explorateur brie, or pasta dishes. Also holds up with a steak!
