External Reviews for Cakebread Cellars Syrah Carneros
Rating: 91/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Now we must admit that Napa's cool Carneros district is not the first place that pops into mind when thinking about fine Syrah, but this very deep, fully ripened, long-on-character offering is a solid success on every count. Its mix of sweet berries, spice and rich oak leaves room for an intriguing touch of minerals to peek through, and, in spite of its high ripeness, it shows more sinew and structure than fat. It wants a few years before drinking with the likes of savory braised lamb, but it should continue to grow for a decade.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.
