McCrea Cellars, Inc.-Syrah-Ciel du Cheval Vineyard-Red Mountain-Washington State-2006-14.8% Alcohol-$19.99-A very distinct and bold nose of red and dark fruits and spice, dark purple in color, one of the biggest fruit noses I can recall.   A full bodied single vineyard Syrah with red and black currants, blackberries, with layers of exotic spices and chocolate, long finish.           WE-93           CR-91           Good with meats, chicken, pasta.
