Edna Valley Vineyard  Paragon  Syrah Mike Taylor Good  2002  $17.00
Edna Valley's 2002 Syrah is a mix of fruit from cool and warm regions within California's Central Coast. It begins with a dark ruby core that fades to a purple rim. The nose is treated to aromas of blueberries, vanilla and spice (nutmeg) that are delicate in intensity. However, in the mouth, the wine's fruit flavors seem to follow cooler coastal fruit rather than the riper fruit found on the nose. Those flavors, along with crisp acidity, give the wine a sour fruit flavor. Fine light tannins add structure to the stringy lean body. The wine finishes clean and the flavors lingered briefly.
