Red blend bought at winery after tasting. Blackberry pie with a pepper finish. Dry but with an interesting sweetness that came from the aroma not the sugars. Liked this one a lot. Paired with red wine pot roast. — 5 years ago

Dusty Nabor Wines Ballard Canyon Syrah 2017, California
Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.
Fruity nose of blueberries, blackberries, black currants, black plums, oak, licorice, vanilla, cola, dark chocolates, tobacco, black pepper, earth and Indian spices.
Full-bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate and fruity with blackberries, black currants, oak, light vegetables, vanilla, coffee, spices, peppercorn, leather and tobacco.
Long finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a very enjoyable Syrah from California. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel.
Good right out of the bottle, but better after 90 minutes of airtime. As it opens up, lots of coffee and chocolate notes come in, which is very nice to see.
Wine Enthusiasts 90 points.
Already drinking well, but will be better in the next 3 to 5 years.
Nicely balanced, interesting and engaging. I especially enjoyed the nose here.
I paired it with cheeses and crackers.
A blend of 93% Syrah and 7% Viognier. Aged for 16 months in 50% new French oak barrels. Unfiltered and unfined.
15% alcohol by volume.

The taste of this wine reminds me of how mother would force me to introduce myself to perfectly strange kids and make me play with them. Looking back on it now I thank her for the memories, as some became life long friends I still hold dear to this day. I just wish she would have also enforced this effort in socialization during my own childhood.
Approaching this wine was at first awkward and off-putting, whether the label or the AVA, or maybe the person I encountered the wine through...but I was immediately intrigued and it did indeed make for some mighty fine sipping after all. — 5 years ago
