2008 Merrill Cellars Syrah

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

A very dark opaque red wine, it has good legs and lovely color.  This Syrah has a huge nose, blackberry cobbler, cigar box, roasted meat and vanilla.  Once you can stop sniffing this wine the palate rewards you with full bodied fruit forward flavor with a huge supple tannic finish that lasts and lasts. This may cellar well for next 2 to 5 years if you can wait for it. A big bold wine for bold cuisine or just good company.

Score: 92
Cost: $ 30
Wine Type: Syrah, Southern Oregon, Rogue Valley
