2006 Sierra Foothills Syrah
If you liked Lot 1 or Lot 6 Lodi Syrahs or the Sonoma Mountain Syrahs, you'll love this wine.
Intense nose of perfectly ripe blueberry fruit with hints of caramel and a touch of black pepper. The profile is mirrored in the mid-palate, but watch as the wine changes in the glass and a deep plumminess emerges. The finish is long and intense, with well-integrated vanilla notes and spicy dark fruit. Overall, a big wine with outstanding depth, richness, and ripeness. The oak is perfectly integrated despite plenty of new wood—2/3 French, 1/3 American oak.
Style: Full, Bold
