ryansnyder reviewed Cristom Vineyards Estate Syrah Willamette Valley 2004 on May 27, 2007
I don't know that I've ever said this about a Syrah before, but this Syrah is pretty. It's because of the lively acidity that is paired with the black currant, stewed black raspberry, bacon and black pepper. If I were tasting this in a blind tasting, I would say this wine resembles a cooler climate Rhône like St. Joseph. Well done!
