Crios Syrah Bonarda 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Big plummy and earthy fruit tones on the nose with a touch of wet fur and some spice and herb stem tones, almost thyme some soapy floral notes too, round and polished in the mouth with some aggressive, extracted tannins, nice acidity yields a slightly rustic wine but the intensity of the flavors matches the wine’s red plummy fruit, a touch simple but really the perfect style wine for burgers and simply smoked, fatty meats, A touch peppery on the backend with some refreshing watermelon rind notes, decent length, more melony fruit on the finish with a touch of sour apple. Fun 87pts

Gamey but not overpowering aromas of spiced red fruit. A juicy, refreshing wine with great structure and firm chewy tannins finishing with a bit of licorice and dark chocolate resin.

Plump bright juicy plum fruit with grippy tannins. The finish holds together and maintains a delicate edge as it fades away.

purple inky color, aromas of chocolate and leather and mint/eucalyptus, lush, spicy flavors, tannic but mouth watering finish. Pairings: red wine friendly foods… rich and sweet sesame chicken is pretty good too… brings out brown sugar tastes

Wine Spectator ReviewRated 89Very juicy and enticing, with lushly layered plum sauce, black licorice, fig cake and boysenberry notes that glide over round tannins. Very tasty. Drink now.Wine Tasting NotesDark reddish/purple color. Intense aroma of black raspberries. This medium-bodied, very lively wine has loads of ripe red plum and black raspberry flavors with a slightly spicy character and a long, juicy finish. This 2005 vintage has a depth of flavor and intensity on the palate that is almost unheard of for wines at this price. It's a winner both before and during a meal. Certainly enjoyable in its youth, but it will age beautifully. A fun wine to try with a wide range of red wine-friendly foods, and one that will delight even the most pretentious connoisseur.
