Day 241 Drink: Jelly Roll 2007 Syrah
Jelly Roll Syrah is a blend of grapes from two California Central Coast vineyards, Larner and Stolpman.
Santa Ynez Valley home of the two vineyards is located in Santa Barbara County. The valley is formed by San Rafael Mountains to the north and Santa Ynez Mountains to the south.
Jelly Roll 2007 Syrah is a dark purple color and has a nose of dark stone fruits upfront. The flavor is full bodied with black berries, plums and a moderate level of tannins. The wine has a silky mouthfeel, with a finish that has some spice.
