Andrew Murray Vineyards
2008 Syrah – Tous Les Jours
ALC: 14.5% Price: $14.99
Purchased from Costco
”The 2008 vintage is remarkably dark and full-bodied, and yet it has such gentle tannins. It is truly a pleasure to drink, especially at the price. Lots of fruit and spices here…no need to wax poetic about this one as it tastes just plain yummy.
We feel the wine makes an ideal ‘House Wine’ the wine you open just for the heck of it, or just to pour a single glass, the rest to be enjoyed later. And at this price, why not? However, we do not skimp on the winemaking for this wine. We start with great grapes from Paso Robles and the Santa ynez Valley and use the different climates to create a wine that is both fruity and spicy at the same time. I use my experiences with both new world and old world style winemaking to make the most drinkable Syrah imaginable. “
