You've done quite a fine job contributing today. Thanks for all the info!

Having dinner with a friend of mine in the wine industry (VML Winery in Healdsburg) and we just had the Golden's Legacy open with dinner.
We both agreed that the wine was wonderfully balanced, elegant- 'the kind of Syrah you want to home to". Dark fruit enveloped in a light, floral layer (that 3% Viognier). A wonderful wine.
We chased it with a big, Paso Syrah (15.3) and the Paso wine fell flat in comparison (and I like said Paso Syrah!)
Interesting cool climate/warm climate comparison. Verdict- Cougar Crest rocks.
