    The 2006 Syrah Sawi Vineyard is a small lot that includes 5-10% whole clusters. A floral, charcoal, pepper, blueberry, blackberry, and meaty-scented bouquet emerges from this medium-bodied Syrah.

    Tasted with Boeuf Bourguignon. Unfortunately, the Sawi vineyard was too powerful (14.5). I like this wine, but it did not show well.

Winemaker Karen Culler left Mondavi to begin making her own wines in 1997. Her premiere release Syrah was one of the most sought-after wines of the vintage. Culler produces Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and a red blend named La Palette.

California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
