EOS Reserve Petite Syrah 2000 (NW)

Great nose of soft fruit and milk chocolate
Prominent strawberry
Very silky on the palate
Long finish

This is a very nice wine from Paso Robles, CA. I've enjoyed a number of wines from this region and think this is one of the best Petite Syrah's I've ever had. It is oh-so-smooth, that the texture alone makes it enjoyable. If you haven't discovered this varietal, start looking for it. It probably won't be an every day wine because it's typically a smaller production wine that costs a little bit more. I bought this bottle with Billy of this blog while we were visiting PB and we paid $22. They had enjoyed the same wine just two nights earlier before I arrived in Maine, so it came highly recommended. Raise a glass!
