2007 Stefania Syrah Eaglepoint Ranch
I really wish that I had something new to report on this wine, but botle after bottle is pretty much the same, and we still haven't come across a bad bottle of this yet. In all actuality, this was the 8th bottle of this that we have burned through thus far, although, I only had a small sip from this bottle so the others could enjoy it.
Notes are similar to other bottles, with a nose of bright cherry, berries, pepper, and spice, a bit of vanilla and smoked oak.
On the palate, this was gorgeous once again considering it was popped and poured at room temp as this was pulled out of the cellar earlier in the day. Awesome cherry and spice are represented here, with some nice dark berries and a bit of mint. The spice on this wine is magnificent, and the light pepper is really nice. Hints of mocha and plum round out the palate, with a bit of earthiness, and this is just pure joy. 92 points! Cheers

Born in Illinois, I spent my younger years as a local Chicago Foodie checking out restaurants in the city, and working as a waiter at many of the finest restaurants in the suburbs of Chicago. Look for me visiting a restaurant near you, or at one of the many local wine offlines throughout New Jersey
