  • 2003 Foxen Syrah Williamson-Doré - USA, California, Central Coast, Santa Ynez Valley (2/7/2007)
    Have not had a Foxen Syrah in quite some time, so I thought I would give this a whirl while watching the USC-UCLA basketball game. Score is tied, so perhaps I'm a bit distracted. Opened and served in a Riedel Vinum Syrah stem. Nose of blueberries, plum preserves, roasted meats, and marshmallow cream. More blueberries, plum, and meat on the palate, accented by spice and pink peppercorns on the finish. Texturally, this is a creamy wine, with good acidity and firm tannins. While drinking quite well now, I think it will show even better with some more time in the cellar. A nice effort, and go Trojans! 91+ points. (91 pts.)
