Casaeda Syrah 2012
|Appellation||Russian River Valley|
Wine AdvocateThis is a major sleeper of the vintage as well as a great value in California Syrah from Karen Culler. Made from 100% Syrah, it offers up luscious notes of ripe blackberry fruit, incense and a touch of white flowers. Deep and medium to full-bodied with silky tannins and a layered mouthfeel, this terrific wine can be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years. It is hard to believe one can find such a delicious Syrah for under $50 a bottle, so move quickly.
