Not good enough for a 5 star since I drink a lot of Syrah and note that it could use a touch more tannin and body. But for a Napa origin it is quite good and I have re-purchased some. I would ask for a higher alcohol - say 15% versus 14.5% which might add significant flavor and be slightly bigger. I wish CH could come by more Syrahs such as previous lots as they are the ones we look forward to. All in all a very good bottle!
Not what we expected
The first taste from this wine was pepper. I'm not a fan of a peppery wine so it was just ok. Not like the 646 Syrah which we liked very much. It's evident everyone has different tastes.
Great for the price - will order more
Another varietal that I don't have a lot of experience with but this one is a really nice rich offering that I will probably order again. Thanks CH for expanding my red palette beyond cabs.
Would not have thought a syrah from Napa could match a Rhone standard but this certainly does. Napalicous.
This is a good California Syrah and good dark black blue fruit tones.
patience is a virture...
ay 3 - wow. what a difference. if you have any left, open at least the night before and let it open up. it has wonderful northern rhone tendencies with lots of spice and dried fruit. quite a bargain at $20, but gone apparently. wish he had more to sell...
Great wine for the price!
I think this is among CH's best values. A luscious fruity syrah that complements grilled meat ad eve pasta. Lots of upfront dark fruit ad log aftertaste. You don't find a lot of excellent, straight syrah so this is a real find.
Big and Bold
Anything with a Napa Valley name on it for $20 is unbelievable, you have to love CH wines!
Full Earthy Flavor
This wine has very earthy, but fruit filled flavors and goes great with all foods.
