Rating: ***+ 2005 Herman Story Syrah, San Luis Obispo County, CA

Review: The San Luis Obispo syrah was pure magenta in the glass. The aroma began to get very interesting, showing a burnt candy-apple nose. The palate lived up to the aromas, delivering more candy apple, a sweet middle and lush finish. Extremely pleasant. Not enough intrigue to make this wine your sole partner for the day, but interesting enough to come back to another time, with high expectations of enjoyment.

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