Lot 177 Napa County Syrah 2006
Notes: Violet-red with an opaque rim. Balanced fruit, glorious aromatics and deep complexity. The wine is thick with crushed plum, blackberry, sage, and mineral notes, supported by sweet and finely grained tannin. The finish is balanced with tremendous length and complexity. Cameron Confidential: This wine comes from the Spencer Roloson Vineyards, which consistently produce 92-point wines. This Syrah comes from the Herradura Vineyard, a brilliant site tucked into the lower slopes of Howell Mountain in the Conn Valley. With a subsoil that is ancient seafloor and Franciscan bedrock, these vines work for everything they bear.Unbeatable juice for $15.
Fruity, a bit peppery. A lot of alcohol, a lot of sugar. Drinkable - almost like a simple jug wine. Probably sugar was added so as to get the hight alocohol content (15%). Disappointing relative to my expectation per the winemaker's writeup.
