Syrah from Potter Valley, Mendocino County, California.
Available for $13 exclusively at Club W. Sample submitted for review.
From Club W:
“Kenny’s organic Syrah is a dead ringer for some of the great Syrahs that come out of Northern France, but his is created in the California backyard of Mendocino. The elements of elevation, rugged terrain, and coastal fog that define the Santa Cruz Mountains helps Kenny create a Syrah that is all about purity and finesse rather than outright power. With bright, pickled berry flavors it’s a fine example of the beautiful subtle nuances that result from the attention to detail and thoughtfulness required for all-natural winemaking.
It’s no secret that we’re fans of the Club W wine club. The reason for that is quite simple — they sell very good wine at great prices. Just take a look at a few of our recent finds:
- The Independent Chenin Blanc 2013 – Clean And Classy. BULK BUY!
- Porter and Plot Pinot Noir 2012 – Plenty Good
- Butcherblock Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 – Meat Lovers Meet Your Match
- La Reina Torrontes 2013 – Summertime Sipping At Its Best. BULK BUY!
Today we’ve got another excellent find, this time from the winemaker behind the Hobo Wine Company. The 2013 Brethren of the Road Syrah begins with a pleasant aroma chock full of red and dark berry fruit. Tasting reveals more of the same fruit, juicy in the mouth, along with some great earthy notes in this smooth and balanced medium-bodied wine. Light spicy streaks lead into the long, dry, almost dusty finish. This is definitely a tasty Syrah for people who like a little earthiness in their wine.
