2008 Failla Syrah Phoenix Ranch
- Napa Valley
Community Tasting Notes 9
williamswhine Likes this wine: (92 points)
January 17, 2015 - Dark purple to inky hue. Dark berries with faint strawberry nose. Spicy, oaky, full bodied, nicely balanced tannins, easy to drink by itself. Great on a cold day just chillin' out.

November 28, 2013 - Really should have waited on this one. Still tight but the power and potential are there.
August 9, 2013 - Knew from pouring into the decanter that this bottle was going to be rocking the black olive.
Olives meats and cherries. Looks like these are ready now.

December 20, 2012 - Dark ruby hue, intense dark fruit, spicy-- candidly a little different tasting (not flawed). Rustic wine with a lot of character. Mixed reviews at the table.1 person found this helpful Comment
