2007 Sainstbury Carneros Syrah - Rodgers Creek, Carneros CA

Rachel and I opened up this bottle to enjoy during the Duke vs. Butler NCAA Tournament Championship and both were pretty impressed.  Great tasting Syrah - drinkable now, went great with pizza (Amicis with artichokes, olives and fresh basil).  This wine was inky and we found it to be rich with flavor with a nice finish.  Only regret is that we didn't get more when we were at the winery.  On an earlier post I wrote about what a great find this winery was off the beaten path.  We essentially had a personalized tasting and were able to sample quite a few wines.  Rachel and I intend on going back to the winery along with some friends so they can experience the great wines in a subdued setting themselves.  No crowds, just nice people that are very proud of the wines they produce who are excited to share with visitors.

Most Syrah grapes prefer warmer climates but this wine is made with grapes located in cooler climate.  You can read more detail about this wine on their web site. Winery Map.
