  • Thanks, OT.  I won't write the poor grape off entirely.  Yes, I ... ... thought when I had that Carlisle that I was getting a representation of cool-weather Sonoma syrah.  Yes, I know, it was just one data point, but I've heard y'all go on about it.  It was nice!  I liked it...  I also had to look back in my notes from Taste of Sonoma.  Seeme...

  • NG and Jon - I think you've tried the wrong Syrah. It's far more ... ... I'm not sure I'd put Carlisle into the cooler climate category, at least style wise. It's good enough but doesn't seem "cool climate" in the same way as something like say, Arnot-Roberts or Failla or even Peay's. And then there's a lot up in WA that's different again. And...

  • I love N. Rhone Syrah.  It's my favorite red wine in France.  But the acreage of the region is so small and the area that provide its best wines even smaller, that prices have hit the roof.  Sure, there are a few St. Josephs and Crozes-Hermitages that come in around $25, but those are either made for earlier drinking and a lot less thrilling wit...
