Nice food wine
Great Nose but somewhat thin finish. The wine goes very well with food but it is somewhat thin when drinking it without food. Certainly drinking now and no need to decant.
My wife and I are fans of Syrah and this is a very nice one, especially for the price. We've had it hanging around a while, so it was very accessible without a decant and well-structured. My only minor criticism is that it was a bit thin and hot/alcoholic on the finish, though not really harsh, just a bit of roughness to an otherwise fine experience. Yet another fine offering.
Better than we expected
A Syrah is not the typical wine we normally drink but thanks the the CH wine club, we get to explore new worlds of taste. This was a very good wine and would have been really great with food, I'm sure, but we tend to open a bottle of wine prior to eating. I know, how gauche! It really opened up once we let it sit a little while.
Does not disappoint
Syrah, good or bad, is hard to find in the typical wine store, so I am always on the lookout. This wine does not disappoint. It has a full flavor,with lots of berry, and spice, but not peppery. It's a very good value and stands up to BBQ ribs or nicely complements a hardy cheese.
Jack and Linds
We should have ordered more bottles of this one. Tastes of leather and berries come through. Great one
Not as good as hoped for
This was a nice Syrah, but not as deep and fruit filled as anticipated. still good.
Nothing special at this time
Some fruit on the nose but not much on the taste. I got a lot of bitter taste on the finish. Don't know if it will get better with time but not my cup of tea.
A bit disappointing
My wife and I love Syrahs and really enjoyed Lot 508. However, we did not care for the flavor profile of this Syrah. We will be ordering Lot 542 this week, and expect we will enjoy it more!
At this price point it is a wonderful wine that we have purchased for every day drinking.
This is a way young wine; hard to enjoy at this point in its life. Given all the hype, I sure hope cellaring benefits this juice.
