Review: ***+ $ Rock Garden Syrah, Santa Ynez Valley, California, 2013 = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Rock Garden Syrah.

Original tasting and review : This is Rock Garden Syrah, Santa Ynez Valley, California, 2013, finished at 14.8% alcohol and first sampled 2 years from vintage date, in March, 2015.

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

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows red raspberries and blackberry stew.  From the aroma, seems like this will be fruity and easy-going.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact very much in the red raspberry style, with a layer of deeper, smoky black cherry bringing the sip along.  Finish lingers with a more full-bodied tone.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars with a big plus on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.  Great value at attractive price point.
