2008 Grey Stack Cellars The Muldoon Greywacke Vineyard, USA, California, Sonoma, Russian River Valley, Wine Review
A very nice example of a cooler climate Syrah. At age 10, this is just sort of chugging along on its way, but not yet, at maturity. Purple in color. The nose is black raspberries with some black olives and slight bacon fat. Very much a Northern Rhone profile. On the palate, there is a grilled black raspberry fruit quality to this. Slightly sour fruit. Some slight heat on the finish. Overall, very solid and enjoyable. Food friendly. Perhaps still some upside to go.
