Sarah’s Vineyards-Besson Vineyard-Syrah-Santa Clara Valley-California-2005-$17.77-A bold nose of spice and currants, dark purple in color. A very enjoyable Syrah, big, smooth, black currants, black cherries, a complex wine with a long finish.  My last bottle, all three times this was good juice.                 RP-90                CR-90               Good with steak, chicken, pasta.
