Savory on the nose with enough sweet blueberry to make it varietally enticing, this light purplish Syrah is well-balanced, pleasing and well-made, ready to drink now with a range of foods, its alcohol in proportion and acidity right on target. Wente blends in small percentages of Counoise, Petite Sirah, Mourvèdre and Tempranillo into this great-value Syrah. Delicious.
