Fantastic syrah from Scherrer. Extremely well balanced with dark cherries, dried plum, a touch of smoke, some leather, light to medium tannins and a great finish.
This is fantastic syrah made more in the Rhone style than California in that it is very well balanced, smooth but not over the top jammy. For an '07 this still has a lot youth in it and will only get even better with age.
