rated this wine as 92/100
with the following review:
The integrated, medium to full bodied 2006 Benziger Syrah has a nice bouquet of pronounced vanilla-coconut, followed by less intense wood and oak and with delicate yogurty strawberry/blueberry aromas. It has refined tannins (decant for 15 to 30 min) and a long and smooth finish. It is ready to drink now but will nicely age for the next 5 to 10 years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 92 pts - a definite recommendation, especially at this price. Tasted Dec/10.
Benziger Syrah 2006, North Coast, California, United States: Vintages Wine Panel: Benziger has long practised sustainable agriculture in the production of their wines. Their methods are not only good for the environment, they also help nurture grapes with more site-specific characters, flavours and aromas. This full-bodied Syrah shows ample blackberry fruit with hints of coffee, supported by supple tannins. Try it with beef steaks, from grass-fed cows. My note: Full-bodied and lip-smacking delicious. Aromas of dark fruit and smoke. Drink: 2010-2014. 67215 14.50% XD 750 mL $19.95 Score: 89/100. September 18, 2010 Full Review
