Longboard Syrah North Coast 2006

Member Review by WineborkDotCom:

This Syrah has a strong resemblance to a good French Cotes du Rhone. Earthy dark berry and blueberry fruit along with a hint of dried spice and black pepper. Tight, French-like structure and slightly dusty tannins, unlike more open-knit California or Australian Syrahs. This is a good Syrah and very fairly priced in the California wine world, though you can get many Cotes du Rhones having similar flavor profiles and overall quality for somewhat less money.

Try balance, harmony and nature for starters. Surfing is part sport, part meditation and all working within, rather than against, nature. Winemaking? Pretty similar approach. Both surfers and winemakers reach the summit of their respective crafts when they attain an understanding of, and a respect for, the environment in which they work (and play). Adapting to their surroundings, they achieve peak performance, on the waves and in the vineyards.
