Cline Cellars Syrah Sonoma Coast 2007
Wine Tasting Notes The Cool Climate Syrah has great color, rich blueberry and black pepper character combined with a cedary-smooth finish and bright acid. The terroir of our "Lazy C" and "Lazy P" vineyards bring forward the cracked pepper and berry notes that are typical of Syrah from a cooler climate. This wine pairs well with seafood pasta dishes, tri-tip steak smothered in wild chanterelles, and chicken satay. The Cool Climate Syrah is very approachable now but will also age beautifully for 5 to 7 years.
On the nose, floral notes, strawberries and red currant. On the palate, strawberries, red currant, cranberry, hints of pomegranate, tea and sassafras, and very subtle meatiness. There is a bit of an apple peel tart edge, and on the finish, a hint of pepper. Medium bodied with a moderate finish. Went well with a grilled tenderloin.
Odd nose - rubber band/latex and baby wipes. More going on than the Line Shack, but still a touch of cheapness. Red fruit, a little spice. Medium tannins and acid, minty finish. Disappointing QPR. $35
Unfolds with spicy food.
Deep color, medium plus body oak, alcohol, bacon leather and black pepper nose. Good acidity, modest tannins and medium finish that ends dry. Not super generous. Could benefit from more fruit and a cleaner more focused taste. Best with food. Good value $9.99
Home run for an inexpensive Syrah. Plummy, round, harmonious balance of fruit and acid. 13.5% alcohol claimed: not off the chart. Totally satisfying quaff and remarkable value. We have been buying by the case.
This is my go to everyday red wine. Inexpensive, yet very drinkable and enjoyable.
Black cherry, pepper, and hint of vanilla. The pepper is a bit overwhelming. The appearance and texture is light for a syrah. Paired pretty well with pork chops.

Stylish, with lovely aromas of spice, violet, beef and ripe black cherries. Stays deftly balanced through the finish, with well-integrated oak and firm, chewy tannins. Drink now through 2006.
