2007 McClean Estate Private Reserve Syrah, Paso Robles 750ml
This wine is full-bodied but really managed to maintain an elegant mouthfeel. It will certainly compete with just about any Syrah of the same age, regardless of place. The wine has defined red fruit on the palate, but it's much more lush and less oxidative than with the '06. Rather than sour red cherry, you get tons of ripe, fresh red cherry, as well as a hint of strawberry on the nose and palate. This is a wine that will work with food, but will be much more appealing to those who want to drink wine without the presence of food.
