Producer Wine Name Varietal Reviewer Rating Vintage Cost
River Run Vintners  Clautiere Vineyard  Syrah Mike Taylor Very good  1998  $15.00
Small family wineries in California produce plenty of outstanding wine albeit sometimes hard to find unless you buy from the cellar door. River Run's 1998 Syrah was produced from fruit sourced from the Clautiere Vineyard of Paso Robles. The wine shows a nice ruby core fading to a light rose rim. The nose is wonderfully rich with raspberry and dark chocolate. With pleasure, the flavor follows through with light soft tannins and low acidity offering a mellow mouth feel. Parting with a robust finish that lingers, this is a tasty Syrah that is still showing nice fruit but should be enjoyed now.
