Great nuances of cola and dark, stewed fruits. Mouth coating and powerful, yet velvet smooth. Delightful syrah and at this price point a real bargain! 93 pts according to WS.

Excellent, easy to drink syrah that drinks like a $25 bottle.

This is one of our favorites; we bought all we could find in Jacksonville, FL and can no longer find it around here. It is a luscious syrah with hints of bacon (smoke?).

Winemaker's Notes:

<strong>91 Points "WINE SPECTATOR!!!"</strong> With so many wineries flashing portfolios of 15 wines or more, I have developed an appreciation for those that focus on just a few varieties and then try to hit the grape out of the park. One such winery is Klinker Brick of Lodi, owned by fifth generation farmers and vineyard operators, Steve and Lori Felten. We were early supporters when the Feltens launched their brand with Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel, a terrific wine for around $18. Then we became huge fans when they released Old Ghost, a premium zin that retails for $37, and one of the best from Lodi we've ever featured. Now, they've done it again with their 2007 Klinker Farrah Syrah ($20). Like all of the Klinker Brick wines, this one offers huge fruit, dense color and big berry flavors. Even "Wine Spectator" took notice, awarding the wine 91 points and naming it a "Smart Buy." Ain't that the truth? Enjoy this one with beef, barbeque or anything with huge flavors. Gary is hoping to stop by the winery on his Vintage Highway tour of Lodi later this month. Winery Tasting Notes: This single vineyard wine has a deep, rich garnet color and shows tobacco, mint and cherries on the nose. With dense silky layers of raspberry and chocolate, this full-bodied wine offers a long, smooth finish with hints of earth and spice. 14.8% alcohol. Wine Spectator Tasting Notes: Smooth, rich and complex, showing tiers of ripe plum, blackberry and wild berry, with notable cedary dill- and vanilla-laced oak. But this is very nicely proportioned, ending with a long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2015. 3,500 cases made. ñJames Laube
