"Made the way Randall Grahm likes Syrah, which is a dry, peppery wine with rich outbursts of sweet cherry fruit. It must be the blending, but this wine seems to possess both warm- and cool-climate aspects, which is often what works best in a Californa Syrah.

San Bernabe Vineyard in Monterey produces a much prettier wine, bright, fruity – in the blackberry, raspberry range – and floral. Ca' del Solo and Chequera Vineyards provide a very potent core of richness and tannin with an exceptionally high-toned note of violet. Still very much the essence of yin, this quite powerful wine nonetheless has grip and stuffing out the yang.
