Candela Syrah Lake County Castelero Vineyard 2007

Member Review by cgplayer9:

Was this ever a slow opener! It didn't really start coming alive until over 4 hours in the decanter. Tannins firm and very tight at first, like chewing on a tea bag. After opening up, each sip was a blast of flavor, none really predominate - just a solid background of blackberry and a black currant surrounded by notes of bacon fat, earthy spices (like cumin, sage), mushrooms and a little raisin.
