great wine for under $20!
Plum, chocolate, cream...
June 2007: LIVE Rating: this is dark almost opaque in the glass. The aroma of purple cream, just like the 2005. On the palate, there is a burst of multiple flavors. Plums, chocolate, cream. These are moving across the palate, and moving through time with the tannins. Oh, yes, I'll stay with this, and drink more than I should. 5 stars. More reviews at http://spiritofwine.blogspot.com

We have two more bottles; so maybe, now that we have lower expectations, we will decide that this is a ***** wine after all.

this wine will knock you out with exuberant fruit, incredible flavors, color and a really nice length. It is a really full bodied wine and can be cellared for five or six years.
While the grape is currently grown throughout the world, the most elegant Syrahs still come from the Northern Rhone valley, particularly the appellations of Côte Rôtie, Cornas, and Hermitage. Here, steep, terraced vineyards help produce full-bodied, intense, tannic wines loaded with white pepper and red fruit. In the vineyard, Syrah is largely cooperative- vines are productive, but not overly vigorous. Skins are thick, helping the grape...
