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.

A Syrah wine from California in USA. 2006 Cakebread Cellars Syrah 750ml

Cakebread Cellars has made each of the five Syrah clonal selections and was harvested and fermented separately in small stainless steel fermenters, with manual punchdowns to thoroughly macerate the cap of skins and extract maximum color and flavor from the juice. Once fermentation completed, the wines were transferred to French oak barrels, 49% new before the final blend was assembled in December, 2005. We then aged the wine an additional year in barrel before bottling in December, 2006.
