Robert Parker, The Wine AdvocateThe 2007 Syrah Pisoni Vineyard-Susan’s Hill, which comes from an upper ridge of the Pisoni Vineyard. The most backward of this quartet, about one-third whole clusters/stems are utilized. The result is a full-bodied, inky/blue/purple-colored Syrah offering up sweet aromas of creosote/charcoal, barbecue spice, blackberries, boysenberries, licorice, and a hint of lavender. Possessing a superb texture, full-bodied opulence, and a long, 45+ second finish, it should drink well for 5-6 years, and may evolve for a decade or more. Time will tell.
SyrahAlso known as Shiraz in Australia and South Africa, Syrah makes intense, deep wines with plenty of spice, fruit and alcohol. It thrives in warm climates, and is widely grown in Australia, California, and the Rhone region of France, where it makes Cote Rotie and Hermitage, and forms the backbone of Chateauneuf du Pape.

CaliforniaSince the famous Judgement of Paris in 1976 California wines have unquestionably ranked among the best in the world. From the Anderson Valley in the North through Temecula Valley in the South, California vineyards grow dozens of wine grape varietals that produce wines of many different styles. The California wine industry has steadily gained ground since the 1960s (the industry took a major hit following Prohibition), but its roots date back over 200 years.
