Cline Cellars Syrah Sonoma Coast Cool Climate 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Somewhat disappointing, because I like Cline's wines and cool climate syrahs. It seems like they let these grapes ripen too far, and they extracted it too much. Almost jammy body, but it feels artificial somehow. Very fruity, with warm red berries, and an almost Beaujolais candied note. Medium tannins and a pleasant acidity keep this from being a flab fest. Better once it came to room temperature and opened up for a couple hours. Not a disaster, but I wouldn't buy this again. $16
