Charles Smith Boom Boom Syrah 2010 set the Washington State wine world on fire with his "House Wine" and continues that tradition with the explosive Boom Boom Syrah. As the name would suggest, this is no shrinking violet of a wine. (Though you might detect some violets on the nose of the wine.) If you like your wine unabashedly bold and a bit in-your-face, the 2010 Boom Boom Syrah is just the ticket. If you are interested in seeing what Washington can achieve with Syrah at a modest price, the Boom Boom is a wine to pick up by the case. It's nice to have a go-to wine that is going to give you exactly what you are looking for. And though the Boom Boom may have a brash personality on the outside and in the glass, it can certainly be tamed by some bold flavors, like a slow-cooked pot roast or any braised meat that's been sitting in a crock pot all day, just waiting for you to get home and pour yourself a glass.
Deep, rich, ripe. The only reason I give this an 'OK' rating is that it seems pretty one dimensional. Yes it has big powerful fruit...but that's about it. Stream-lined on the palate and wines that lack complexity or structure are just ok for me.
