ryansnyder reviewed Isenhower Cellars Looking Glass Syrah Columbia Valley 2004 on June 17, 2006
One sniff and all I could think was, "Mmm... Rhône..." That barnyardy goodness that is characteristic of the Syrahs of France's Rhône Valley gently wafts out of the glass. On the palate, this Syrah shows opulent, reduced fruit flavors of black currant and blackberry, with hints of loam, sand and black pepper. The finish is a touch on the oaky side, but all-in-all a good showing from the Columbia Valley.
