2008 Martinelli Syrah Terra Felice
Russian River, Sonoma, California
WB Rating: 88

Alcohol by volume: 15.0%
Price at time of purchase: $45.00 (from winery)
Type: Syrah
Principal varietal(s):

Lacks the assertive fruitiness of the Martinelli Zins, and the super-deep, funky, meaty beauty of the single-vineyard Syrahs. That said, though, this is a delicious, balanced, fruit-forward Syrah that displays rich blueberry and black raspberry fruit and a medium-bodied, harmonious texture. Not all that complex, but a lovely mouthful of wine that is not overpowering with food. - HK 2015-07-12
