Spicy finish with fine tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a great California Syrah. Drinking very nicely now, with lots of black fruits and spices.

Showing nice complexity with a great mouthfeel. Well balanced, bold and rich.

Needs 90 minutes to open up properly and bring out the complexity.

Peaking now and will continue to drink nicely in the next few years.

Unusual to see this nicely aged bottle on a list! This was delicious, fresh and juicy from the get go. Not overpowering but kept drawing you back in for sip after sip. In a great window now. — 15 days ago

Sonoma-Hillsides Syrah 2017

Floral, peppery, red-fruited and great acidity. Not quite up to the ‘16, but still very nice. I see K&L has these on sale at $35, which is a steal — 11 days ago

I’m finding more and more appreciation for Martinelli’s Syrahs. This is obviously young, and it only spent about 30mins in the decanter before I poured my first glass. Royal purple in the glass. Wonderful aromatics of savory and herbal spices...charcoal embers with bacon fat, accompanied by currant and underripe blackberries. Lifted acidity on the palate giving the profile of this wine the ability to wear its almost 15% ABV well. Dusty dark fruits alongside bayleaf, and pepper dusted cedar. Hold. — 13 days ago

Very old world in style. Drinking beautifully. I’d be happy at $35 but thrilled to have paid only $18 to Garagiste. — 13 days ago
