2007 Saxon Brown Flora Ranch Syrah
I ordered a three pack of syrahs from this winery from Woot, something I’ve never done before. I like to support my local wine people, or buy from the source when possible, but these bottles looked really legit (glowing press, etc.) and were going at a steep discount, so…
First bottle from the group had all the hallmarks of a big, muscular American syrah.
Lots of dark fruit, dirt and savory notes. Delicious. Too “big” to be drunken everyday, but paired with barbecue this was a killer bottle. Looking forward to the next two.
