Check out today's pricing and retail availability for bargain Paso Robles syrah.


Original tasting and review : This is Trader Joe's Reserve Syrah, Paso Robles, California, Lot 100, 2012, finished at 14.1% alcohol and first sampled two years from vintage date, in August, 2014.

In the glass: Deep magenta, opaque in the center.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows balloon and bold purple fruit.  From the aroma, seems like this will be big and bold, fruity.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact furry and nicely robed purple fruit, showing bold blackberry and furry tannins.  Soft and distinct finish of worthy bold tannic pleasure.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars with a solid plus on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.  Best value.
