I really don't know why I bought these wines in the first place. This winery has continued to disappoint me. All by Girard wines have been relegated to the "for unappreciative guest " box. I don't drink wine every night and I have a harder time working off the calories as I get older so I suffer these wines less and less.
Honestly, this wine is reminding me why I am leaning towards Pinot Noir and away from Syrah more every day. Pinot has always been my favorite but I have held a special place in my heart for Syrah, but I don't care for this bottle's style. Overly dark and jammy, with no special quality. Dense and dark with they typical purple tongue after only a couple glasses.
