Copain Harrison Clarke Santa Ynez Valley 2007 Syrah, $33,99-$39.99, 93 points, begins its lovely presentation with a Shiraz purple color that wells opaque at the core, and the sliver of a silver lining trims this wine youthful enough.
Crushed blackberries, with hints of flowers add their near perfection to this blossoming wine, and cinnamon-clove as a garnish, impress.
Round and lush, this quite drink-able near full-bodied red wine, displays as much elegance in a high acid, big tannin (layered and firm) Syrah, as I've had all year.
Bountiful fruit, blackberry, boysenberry, damson plum, with hints of licorice, bacon fat, and violets, reward with their balanced delicious richness.
Finishing long on the trailing palate, but adding hints of spice with just a touch of heat (13.7% alcohol), wind-up an excellent red wine of note.
