McPrice Myers Paso Robles Beautiful Earth 2006 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Ripe dark berries, gobs of chocolate, and pepper on the nose

Full bodied and richly textured

More dark fruit with black licorice and pepper on the finish


This wine is a big, bold Syrah that carries balance into the finish. I recently drank it with a steak, and it was a worthy compliment. While it runs about $30 retail, I don't see it in my neck of the woods. The restaurant price I paid was $66. Raise a glass!

mcprice myers is a straight up rockstar and we've been supporting them in new york city for a couple of vintages now. we currently carry the 2007 beautiful earth and highly recommend trying the 2006 altas vinas grenache mourvedre blend.
