There's only one wine variety that's supposed to taste like blueberries, and this Syrah shows you why. The sweet blueberries are wreathed in dark black cherries and tangy blackberries as well as meaty, masculine flavors of raw beef and baked beets. It takes a full-bodied, plush-textured wine to blend so many big flavors into one tasting experience, and the vintage gave it to us in 2007. We let the wine develop its personality for more than a year in the barrel, and it will continue to evolve in the bottle -- or in your glass.
"This is just the second release from Cowhorn, but already quite confidently made. Tart and detailed, it hints at earthy, umami, fungal flavors, along with highlights of sweet baking spices. From a biodynamically certified vineyard, the wine was aged 16 months in 45% new French oak."
