Hagafen Estate Bottled Napa Valley 2007 Syrah, $27.99-$29.99, 89 points, has a ruby red color to a transparent rim, but is black at the core.
Sweet spice, coriander, cinnamon, clove, and cedar comprise a nice array of aromas.
A medium body harbors a noticeable mouth watering acidity, a bit of chalkiness with a light tannin balance, tart cherry and plum flavors are complimented by a fair finish of black pepper.
This not an over-whelming Syrah, but competent and delicious.
