Jc Cellars Syrah Napa Valley Caldwell Vineyard 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Slightly pruny and over-ripe blue and black fruit on the nose with huge pepper, rosemary and bacon tone to the nose with some violet top notes and a cinnamon spice oak underlay. A bit loose on entry, and very broad in the mouth with drying tannins and some spicy black cherry fruit and a short finish. Easy drinking and modestly interesting with some cocoa tones and a very nice mouthfeel. I’d like to see more depth here but this is pleasantly drinkable with an attractive open knit quality and freshness. 89pt
