Boxcar Wine Company Syrah Central Coast 2007

Member Review by rhill2990:

What a beautiful bottle of wine. We were served a bottle of this wine at one of our very favorite restaurants in Findlay OH. This wine had everything I appreciate in a good wine. The color was a deep garnet color. I would describe it as a fruit forward wine with gentle tannins and a smooth finish. I was very impressed with this wine.

Our goal is to make wines of rich concentration that offer aromatic complexity, varietal transparency, and vivid separation between the layers of subtle flavors. We want our wines to excite the palate and the mind. Great wines are first and foremost a result of superb raw material. This means carefully chosen sites, cutting edge viticulture, and, of course, low yields. Using both old world and modern techniques, we allow that material to show its unique character by doing as little as possible to manipulate it. We are lovers of wine, not wood. We'll utilize French oak as a spice, to enhance but not overwhelm the wine. In order to avoid stripping away flavor and aroma, we do not intend to fine or filter. We select vineyard sites that are on the cool climatic edge for each varietal. This allows us to obtain boldly ripe fruit that is still balanced with the zing of acidity. Red Car's winery is located in Santa Maria and the main office is in Culver City, California. Read less

A sensational bargain, this 2,600-case cuvée is 100% Syrah aged ten months in primarily neutral French oak. Its dense purple color is accompanied by aromas of creme de cassis, blackberries, licorice, pepper, and forest floor, an opulent texture, and a rich, fleshy finish. Consume it over the next 2-3 years.

Pure and refreshing, with grapey berry, spice and cedar notes. Full-bodied, with fine balance and depth. Ends with firm tannins. Drink now through 2012.
