Two Trusted Truchard Estate Vineyard Syrahs

Truchard Carneros Napa Valley 2005 Syrah, $24.99, 92 points, is a fine wine that I tasted over a year ago. A complex wine, smooth and flavorful, packed with subtle black pepper, with blackberry, having a slightly creamy Bourbon Vanilla wash, and finely paired with almost any hearty cuisine.

Truchard Carneros Napa Valley 2007 Syrah, $24.99, 90 points. I found a new tasting note, at least for me, and that was a gentle finish of red pepper. still a great wine, maybe needing a couple of years resting in the bottle, but wonderful plum and blackberry notes, maybe not quite as full-bodied as the 2005, but great with Mexican sausage and spiced tomato pasta.
