Boom Boom Syrah 2007 wine review by (PB)
This is one of Charles Smith's *Washington state wines--I was looking forward to this as Smith's wines are almost always unique and tasty.
The wine has a weighty black cherry hue with a bouquet yielding sweet perfumed powdery fruit with , cherry candy, and "Chinese 5 Spice" aromas. A little weird but again--unique!
Palate--Chinese 5 Spice flavors with some black pepper, berry fruit and sweet dark chocolate. finish hangs on for a bit.
I wasn't real taken by this wine and honestly was a bit disappointing even at $16. Still, the uniqueness of this creation is an education so raise a glass.
*Shaw's are one brand that you must not let yourself be put off by the amateurish labels. His generic labeled "House Wine" both red and white are usually quite good and nice values!
