$5 more than last time, but IIRC in general 07 is better than 06 by more than 10%!

Great stuff, but can I ask those who've drunk a bunch of these: Anyone get 'mineral' in the flavour profile? I like that in a good Rhone Syrah...

These riper than 06, or just subtler oak?

At least it's two of each. Don't have either and don't see them on Peter's site yet. Git 'em now, taste and hope for them to reappear in a woot-off!

what is the drinking window on these? and what are the differences between the two? i'm looking forward to comparing them myself, but in case someone wants to share their experiences, you have a captive audience.

I'm guessing "French" and "new" are not mutually exclusive.

Try adding of which is between "7%" and "new."

And we finally have a definition of 'is' ;) lol..

Thank you, that makes much more sense now.

The 06' estate syrah was much more fruit forward and was in my opinion a great bottle of wine. Nice fruit and but not overwhelming. I thought it was better on its own than with food. The blueberry shined in this.

The 06' England crest syrah had a similar feel but was more restrained and some more typical subtle syrah notes. Earth, leather etc. And I thought it went great with a nice steak dinner.

I would imagine that the 07's will follow a similar flavor profile but Peter can confirm.

I would say that the Estate Syrah is close to prime enjoyability now through 2014. There's a lot of aromatic complexity, and the texture is rich but smooth. The EnglandCrest is brawnier and should continue to improve over the next couple of years, then plateau for several more. It is bold, unmistakably Syrah, with a big, chewy texture.

Peter,
I dragged my family along on a sonoma wine tasting weekend for my birthday in the fall. Thank you for your hospitality and for spending some time with us and helping my mother to appreciate the industry.

She has since mentioned your winery as her favorite stop multiple times.

I think your comparison is accurate, and the two vineyards' character parallel each other quite consistently year to year. 2007 was an awesome vintage for us, and these two wines are emblematic of the wonderful weather conditions we had during harvest. The wines are very well knit, rich, aromatic and flavorful. IMHO, The hallmark of the 2007 vintage reds is the abundance of rich, round, tannins - that makes for wines that are good young and old. The alcohol levels are generally lower with our '07s also.

You got a deal. I was going to seek out a home for the two since I have too much wine at the moment and am part of peters wine club and will probably get these again in a club shipment.

Fantastic. I owe you $15 plus the Syrah I'm stashing for you.

Quick question. I've got one bottle of the 2003 petite syrah left for some reason. Is this still in a drinkable state, or probably not?

Coincidentally, I've been sipping some delicious 2007 Wellington merlot waiting for tonight's offer - and still reeling from reading over 200 comments on the Cavedoni balsamic today. Now that I see Peter's assessment of the 2007 syrahs as an "awesome" vintage, my finger moved from "I want one" to "I want three!". I'll find the room for them somewhere!

Ah, a great start to the day! First sucker on a Wellington, a shower and breakfast already. Now I'm off to a date with a GoCar.

I'll check in this afternoon to see if it's close to selling out.

Are you overseas again?

I'm deciding whether a single pair will be enough for me or if I need two. There's some order sharing going on here...other Bay Area peoples could get a half set from me if they want.

I'd be interested in half a set I think. Let me sleep on it and let you know in the morning if that's okay. I really want the full set but don't think I can justify the cost right now. Hmmm. Decisions decisions.

Damn, I was hoping they'd maybe do another round of balsamic today, since it sold out so fast yesterday.

That would leave you filling out the second set...which would be perfect!

Hi Peter! I love your Syrah, as you know. and am back in Cali so maybe later next week we can play some Boule!!!
and to be clear... can you also likewise compare each 07 wine directly with its 06 counterpart, in any ways we and you might find enlightening? These are better, or just different?

Any French appellations this might be closest to?

I'm in because it's Wellington, and what's one more order I don't have room or money for anyway right?

I would be willing to split though if any of my splitters were interested.

Peter, Thanks for your participation.

I bought 2 sets of your 2006 Syrah and really liked them. Fruitiness was superb. (In fact just finished the last one..)

I do recall the oak being quite prominent.

Could you compare/contrast the oak treatment of the 2006 vs. the 2007?

Thanks.

Is it broke or just fractured?

Huzzah!!! You can ship to NH now… In for THREE as a thank you!

I would ask, what changed or how did it happen etc? There are a few other wineries I would like to get on the ship to NH bandwagon, and wondering how hard is it to get the license etc….
