Le Baron Ranch School Car Petite Syrah 2006
School Car Petite Syrah features classic intense purple color, a brambly dark fruit nose, cherry and chocolate flavors with a bright acid that will complement food exceptionally well. An interesting combination of new and neutral oak barrels combined with low alcohol showcases the really pretty fruit even more. The warm tannins are just behind the wild berry taste which gives a nice backbone and strength to the blend. The layers of dark fruit go on forever. This is truly a palate pleasing wine.
aromas of dark berries - blackberry, bosenberry, plums, filled with dark fruit on the palate as well with cocoa and chocolate notes, appeared high in alcohol to me but very enjoyable for a new world version of a petite syrah
Boysenberry, Blueberry, chocolate and some extracted jammy flavors with with a modicum of acidity for balance. Easy drinking and pleasant mouthfeel without much tannins. Not a very long finish but inital flavors are rich, sweet and appealing.
