Rusack Santa Barbara County Syrah 2007 Wine Review (NW)
Rich nose of dark berries and plum
Full bodied on the palate
Plush finish of blackberry jam, black cherry, chocolate, and pepper
The Syrah coming out of Santa Barbara County has been outstanding lately, and this wine is no exception. It has all the right stuff- ripe fruit, depth, and structure. It will cellar but tastes great young, too. I paid $25 for this bottle. Raise a glass!
