Sixth Sense Syrah 2004
2004 6th Sense Syrah Lodi Appellation The Phillips brothers planted one of the first Syrah vineyards in California in 1982. So knowing the Syrah was a favorite, it had to be given a special name. Grandpa Don is known for having an actual sixth sense. He knows when a woman is first pregnant and whether she will be blessed with a boy or girl. Lose a belonging? Call Grandpa Don, he’ll tell you right where it is! Not only is this wine about having an actual sixth sense, it is about using all of the five senses to enjoy any bottle of wine. If you turn the bottle around you will even see the grandson, Kevin, looking out from the inside of the bottle, making sure the wine he has so lovingly tended to is being enjoyed! Senses: Awaken your sixth sense to this shadowy concoction of spine-tingling intensity. Smoky layers of white pepper, cigar box cedar, and toasty mesquite meld easily with spicy plum, and rich gooseberry. Taste: Slather up the BBQ with this hardy Syrah. Anything from the grill accompanied by a smoky flavor will fit this mysterious wine.

Wonderful everyday wine - very good by itself and with food. Wonderful mouthfeel.
Syrah with berry and chocolate notes. Good acidity, lots of structure for a syrah
Very earthy and warm, perfect for fall!
I love a Syrah! The fruit is wonderful and jammy. Terrific aroma and mouth feel---smooth from beginning to end.
