Valley of the Moon Sonoma County Syrah 2006
Really Twizzler-y on the nose and a bit tight at first, but with some time to breath in the glass this opens up nicely. Some tart red berry fruit mixed with dark cherries provide a nice flavor balance. Almost a tea with honey flavor on the back end which I find very interesting.
