This was a perfectly executed, flawless, highly polished rendition of a Central Coast Syrah - in fact, it was too perfect, and lacked soul and varietal character. Not sure what the winemaker (Heidi Peterson Barrett) is trying to prove here, but she needs to take a lighter hand in making this wine. It left me cold.
