2007SaxonBrownSyrah2007 Saxon Brown, Syrah “Parmelee-Hill, Camp Block” Sonoma Coast.
This full and vigorous Syrah has loads of fruit, spice and earthy layers that flow in smooth waves across the palate and is very entertaining from nose to finish. The nose has hints of violets and bitter chocolate along with truffle, meat and dark fruits leading to a mouthful of black cherry, plum and boysenberry with flashes of pepper, licorice, dried flowers and exotic cinnamon stick that lingers on the lengthy finish. Refined tannins and forceful flavors highlight this well crafted Syrah from the Sonoma Coast and the Parmelee-Hill Vineyard and made by Jeff Gaffner, known for his wines at Black Kite as well. This is a very pleasing wine and certainly a good buy for quality Syrah, check this wine out if you see it, it is very rewarding and should drink another 3-5 years.
