Rating: **** 2004 Presidio Syrah, Hallauer Vineyard, Santa Barbara County, CA

Review: Presidio's Hallauer Vineyard is organically farmed. This value-priced syrah shows purple and dark in the glass. The aroma is meaty and classically syrah in style. Taste veers towards a slightly burnt style, purple, with a big round middle, showing chocolate and cocoa. Plenty of stuffing. A strong offering that I would be happy to stay with for an evening, thus earning four stars.

This wine was sampled as part of our brief expedition cruising Santa Ynez Valley.
