Barrel 27 Syrah Central Coast Right Hand Man 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Not yet reviewed; 2010 vintage rated 90 points by Wine Advocate: The 2010 Syrah Right Hand Man is a smoking value that's loaded with character. A blend of 97% Syrah and 3% Petite Sirah that spent 18 months in 10% new French and American oak, it dishes out fantastic complexity for the price point with cassis, licorice, wild herbs and caramelized meat aromas and flavors all emerging from the glass. Medium-bodied, plush and pure, with notable tannin, it's a serious wine for very little buck. Enjoy it over the coming year or three. Drink now-2016.

Mac got into food and wine during his early twenties via his friends and coworkers at Trader Joe’s in Southern California. He soon began taking trips up to the Central Coast to just to taste, but quickly found himself volunteering his time on his days off to help out at a number of wineries. After learning the process for a few years and spending more and more time on the Central Coast, Mac was ready to start making wine for himself. It was about this time that Mac met another fledgling winemaker, Central Coast native Russell From. Russell got his start in wine while attending Cal Poly San Luis Obispo’s Agriculture program. Intending to become a farm equipment magnate, Russell began working at wineries mostly because they were hiring, but it wasn’t long before he ‘got the bug’ and began a serious study of winemaking. It wouldn’t be long before he met Mac Myers, and after several discussions, appropriate amounts of wine, and a punch-up or two, Barrel 27 was born to the words “Each bottle of this wine represents a dream realized by two friends”. And so it is. Both Mac and Russell have their own, independent labels as well, Mac’s McPrice Myers Wine Company, and Russell’s Herman Story Wines (named for Russ’s Grandfather). Both wineries are committed to producing Rhone varietal wines, focusing on Syrah, Grenache, Viognier and Roussanne. We work. We work hard to make good wine. You work. You work hard and need good wine. You might have money, but maybe you’re like us. We make Barrel 27 wines for people like us. If you work, and we mean work hard, and you need to drink good wine, and still make your mortgage payments, car payments, kid payments and pet payments, we’re here for you. Our goal is to make wine that works hard at helping hard working America relax for a minute, take a load off, and remove the nose from the grindstone for a while. We hope you enjoy them. Read less

Pleasant bouquet, nice, solid blackberry taste. Smooth and fairly rich body.
