JC Cellars California Cuvee Syrah 2006 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Wild berries, tar, and spice on the nose

Full bodied on the palate

Blackberry, roasted meat, and burnt chocolate on the finish

Here's one of the many Syrah's from JC Cellars. They specialize in a variety of Rhone style wines and typically bottle a number of site-specific Syrah's. This one is the California Cuvee and is towards the bottom of their price scale at $25.

It shows some dark fruit and tarred or burnt aromas that are interesting. While not a great value, this wine has a unique flavor profile that is worth checking out. Raise a glass!
