Over at Purple Liquid: A Wine And Food Diary, our 2005 Lytton West Syrah recently came in first place in a blind tasting of international Syrahs. This is a great blog in general, and this particular post is a wondrous read if you’re a Syrah fan, so I highly recommend checking it out. You can find the post here. This wine was also the subject of a recent post on our blog about co-fermenting Syrah and Viognier, which you can find here if you’re interested, and didn’t catch the story the first time around.
Officially, this wine is no longer available, but we have a few bottles squirreled away in the Monte Bello cellars, so if you’re up for a visit to Monte Bello, mention this post, and I’ll see what I can procure!
