Jc Cellars Syrah Arroyo Seco Ventana Vineyards 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark and tight on the nose with rocky soil tones, and notes of carob, smoke, violet, green peppercorn, biter melon rind, and light golia medicinal tone. A bit compact in the mouth with nice tension through the mid-palate. This shows lovely depth with a core of earthy, carob and herb tinged vibrant boysenberry fruit, There’s a nice peppery spice on the backend where the tannins slowly drift to the surface. The finish is a bit short but shows great fresh fruit character with a long, peppery, slightly herbal, balsamic finish. 91pts
