Fess Parker Santa Barbara County 2008 Syrah, $20.99-$22.99, 89 points, begins in the glass black at the core and trending purple/red and terminating with a clear rim.
Hints of toasty black fruit and sweet cooking spice are undistinguished, but smells of turned earth are rich.
The Full body wine has moderate acidity and tannin that carries a smooth rich blend of plum, blueberry, and boysenberry, but there are hints of licorice and violets toward the late palate.
Finishing with a mild though persistent black and white pepper spice wraps-up a food friendly (Greek salad and pepperoni pizza) big red wine.
Some of my viewers have enjoyed the scenes of New Hampshire, so on occasion I'll drop-in an original picture or two just to keep the theme of NH in the spotlight.
