Rosenblum Cellars Syrah Yolo County Rominger Vineyard 2007
Firm, ripe and intense, with a complex range of mineral, wild berry and blackberry flavors that lean toward jammy without being excessive. The long, persistent finish repeats the fruit themes. Drink now through 2011.Add winemaker's notes
Deep purple color. Fairly modest nose - fruit but also some heat (it's 14.5% abv). As others have written, there is some black pepper on the palate, but it's overwhelmed by the fruit. There's LOTS of fruit here, but it's not particularly balanced by tannin or acid. The finish is very long, but not that pleasant. Kind of like a blue raspberry slushy. I've had this before and rated it 92 at that time, but unfortunately did not take notes. At this point it's got some pluses and some minuses for me.
Tried this week a few days ago, and it's a very nice Syrah that I enjoyed a lot and would recommend. I'm just starting to discover Syrah's, and while Owen Roe's Ex Umbris is still my favorite - this one if certainly worth a try.

Smooth and supple, with graceful plum and black cherry fruit that goes down easy. Elegant and polished. Drink now through 2011.
The 2004 Syrah Rominger Vineyard is a powerful, potent (16.5% alcohol), heady, full-bodied offering displaying plenty of rich blackberry and currant fruit. It should easily last for 5ndash;7 years.
