TN: 2007 Eric Kent Syrah Sonoma County Kalen's Big Boy Blend

We were offered this wine as a replacement when the Dain Savage Juliet we had ordered at Proof in Washington DC was not available. The meal was an impromptu dinner with my siblings after a visit to the Smithsonian. It was a worthy replacement.

It took a while for the wine to open up, but once it did it was a wonderful, powerful syrah. Lots of extracted dark fruits, current, and berry but less spice than the wine it replaced. Fairly long finish with a nice mouthfeel. Notes of sage and minerals definitely placed this as a Sonoma Coast syrah. Not at all acidic, a very easy to drink wine that went well with both the hanger steaks and the duck breast that were ordered. It also paired very well with the cheeses we had as our third course. In fact we enjoyed it so much we ordered a second bottle. A very well made, if small production, wine.
