Rating: ***+ 2004 Rideau Vineyard IC Syrah, Santa Barbara County, CA


Review: This syrah shows as a deep mid-red, pushing an engaging nose of chocolate. On the palate, the chocolate is there again, along with surprisingly bright aromatics. Moderate finish, very pleasant, not quite the depth and heft I was anticipating.

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