2007 Box Car Syrah

Opened the 2007 Red Car Boxcar Syrah, Santa Maria Valley tonight to accompany lamb burgers. Packs quite a punch. I thought it showed a lot of red fruit and licorice on the nose and palate. Not terribly complex, but what's in there is pretty intense. Picks up a neat iron/graphite note on the finish where the tannins really clamp down. Already throwing tons of sediment. Reasonably priced at $20.
