Cline Cellars Syrah Sonoma Coast 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Dark, rich and extremely flavorful, this wine offers deep plum and cherry notes accented with aromas and flavors of vanilla and coffee. This Syrah is concentrated in flavor but tannins are moderate creating a very smooth mouth feel. This is our most flavor-intense Syrah and is one of the most concentrated wines that we make at Cline. The combination of tannin, acid, fruit and great mouth feel come together to create a balanced and robust wine.

Usually I adore everything at Cline. I appreciate the complexities of this but it's just a bit too much for me. The nose is leather and rich black cherry, the palate smooth and complex with strong coffee (perhaps what put me off). It's not too tannic and is really softened with food, highlighting the cherry fruit.

Great fruit, blackberries with a nice earth and smoked meat finish. Light tannins and great acidity, a nice quaffer.

Syrah is a fantastic grape to work with in the cellar. The deep red-purple color explodes and fascinates each time it is poured into a glass.  Its origins stem from the Rhône Valley.  The cracked blac
