TALKING ABOUT TANZER…
July 16, 2012
Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar reviewed our 2009 Bennett Valley Three Peaks Syrah, giving it a 92-point rating, noting the “perfumed nose combines blueberry, blackberry, spicy black pepper and crushed rock. Juicy and classically dry, with a penetrating saline quality to the black fruit and spice flavors. A hint of strawberry from the Grenache perfumes the lingering aftertaste. Finishes with broad, serious, chewy tannins. Very good syrah, not a bit over the top.”
Not your typical domestic Syrah, this wine is a high-elevation, cool climate Bennett Valley Syrah/Grenache vineyard-designated blend that hails from Judge Vineyard. With 13.7 alcohol only, it’s food friendly and elegant.
