California Syrah

rdt01 | Dec 21, 201003:10 PM

Hounds,

I'd like to buy a bottle of good California or Australian Syrah for my brother in law in the $25 range. He seems to prefer California Syrahs, and buys them and Australian Syrahs seemingly haphazardly, and seems to equate price with taste and quality.

I drink mostly reds from the Rhone Valley and surrounding areas, which often (usually) have Syrah in the blend, but I am not familiar with California Syrahs even though I live in California. I will add that I was recently in the Santa Ynez Valley and tasted a couple of Syrahs which were very young, and difficult for me to judge, other than to think they were not very good.

There must be some available for around $25. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
