Chateau Ste Michelle Columbia Valley 2007 Syrah
Chateau Ste Michelle Columbia Valley 2007 Syrah,$8.49-$11.99, 86points, is what it is: an entry-level Syrah, rich and heavy (Blackberry syrup), dense purple color, pungent grape and clove aroma, with early palate sweet "kerosene" and late palate hints of espresso and mocha. The finish is spicy and fair. This Syrah paired well with steak-tips in an American cheese sauce, and paired very well with dark chocolate.
