This one has piqued my interest. Are there any tasting notes out there?

Sounds very much up my alley. This weekend has most definitely tapped me out, though. Maybe if a SoCal person wants to get rid of a bottle, but otherwise I'm just going to stand by the sidelines and regale the crowd with my (not so) pithy comments.

Hi there, redwinefan...
Winemaker Paul Clary here.
I'll quote from the Tasting Notes on the Tech sheets:
"Deep crystalline magenta. Light floral aromas with subtle pepper overtones that carry over to the palate along with crisp, refreshing flavors of cool cherries and black raspberries. Delicate, lingering finish... ...Serve slightly cool (55-60 degrees..."

Stats look good, great vintage, relatively low alc. I would also be interested in any tasting notes or even a general discussion of cool climate Syrahs vs. typical CA Syrahs.

With the 2007 vintage of this wine being noted as "lighter and crisper" than other vintages, how does this affect the wine's peak drinking window and cellaring potential?

I suspect family members could get a free bottle or two of this. More likely someone with the same last name who would like a wine with their name on it

Hehe, yeah I considered that possibility as well. I was itching to find something to combine shipping with the Enos Brack Mountain Red on woot+ anyway, so this fit the bill.

I am intrigued. Waiting for some more reports from drinkers.

That generally suggests club members getting a better price here on woot than from the winery.

And have often been alerted to this deal by the winery.

Hi Chipgreen-
In my experience, cool climate Syrah is a more delicate wine than Syrah from warmer climes. It's almost as if the heavy veil has been lifted so that flavors are revealed and are more pronounced. Warm climate Syrah, for me, always seems to be covered up by a blanket, when a light sheet is called for!

Hi again chipgreen-

Drinking window? I'd say from now 'til 2016, but really, it could surprise me and go further... The wine is still drinking bright, with good acidity.

Thanks for the plug for my Pinot! ;)

Hey rjquillin-

Regrettably, Clary Ranch does not have a wine club at this time. That's more a function of my not having time to properly admminister one. Also contributing to it's absence is the lack of a commercial tasting room. If you want to taste my wines, it involves calling for a personal appointment at my home. Clary Ranch is me. I planted the vines in 2000. I grow the grapes. I make the wine.

Paul, I couldn't help but notice the brix at harvest were super low. Can you please expand on this?

Thanks!

I like to talk about wine, but I'd rather drink it.

I'd like to second the request / props for the pinot. Really good juice.

I'm guessing it has to do with the cool climate site. The brix doesn't get too high because the heat doesn't. You get a much more restrained Syrah from such conditions similar to the N. Rhone.

You've got it. The Ranch is at the extreme western viticultural edge of the Petaluma Gap. Cool and WINDY are the hallmarks of the site. Syrah struggles to ripen here. We've harvested as late as Thanksgiving, believe it or not. Northern Rhone is an apt comparison, as opposed to Australia or even Lodi.

LIVE TASTING NOTES FROM THE WCC OFFICES... (it's part of the job)...

My thoughts: Intriguing.. light nose of plums, sweet spice, violets and a hint of meat... light bodied and easy drinking...
Tart dark berries (a tad cherry) flavors with a hint of minerality and black pepper. Decent finish. A lighter style cool-climate Syrah.

Others in the office:

* Cherry tart mid palette to finish, nose displays its age.

* Smokey, clean, raspberry

Okay, back to work....
