2006 Copain Syrah James Berry Vineyard

Opens with a rich berry nose. The palate shows blackberry, roasted meat, some blueberry. Bright berry fruit on the mid-palate. Smooth tannins, bit drying. Nice acidity and balance. Finishes long but with perhaps a touch of heat. Perhaps a bit past peak. I'd drink up over the next two years. Went well with bone-in pork chops. "B+"
