Day 270 Drink: Klinker Brick Lodi Farrah Syrah 2007
Steve and Lori Felten are fifth generation grape growers in California's Lodi region. The family has gown many things on the land over the decades, including watermelons. For years grapes grown on the estate were shipped around the country for use by home winemakers.
Klinker Brick Lodi Farrah Syrah 2007 displays rich plum and a hint of cigar smoke in the aroma. The wine has a good cedar base with berries, dark skin fruit and a smooth range of tannins.
