Syrah is also known as Shiraz and comes in many styles from all over the world. In Australia, they make it in a jam-bolic style, in the south of France, a more restrained style. In Napa, Burgess has gone old-world and made a soft and rounded style of Syrah that I would consider pretty decent for an everyday drinker. However, the price of this offering versus the quality and value leave me somewhat disappointed. Some fruit, little tannic structure and nothing to really stick out and say “pick me”. I really wanted this wine to rock and roll, but it’s just not happening. 2 stars in my books. I reckon an 86 pointer.
