2007 Darby Winery, The Dark Side, Syrah, Columbia Valley


This is a bottle I bought last year from McCarthy & Schiering for $25.  This is a rather forceful wine but if you like that style, this bottle is a great value.  I also had a bottle of the Chaos at Portalis Wines earlier in the year.  After one hour of air it really started to shine and I remember liking it very much.  I believe Clark and Julia liked it as well.

The grapes were sourced from Sheridan, Stonestreet, Boushey, and Discovery vineyards.  There were 275 cases produced.  This wine is very dark in the glass.  It had a dark nose of roasted earth and red fruit.  Jenn noticed some grass or straw aromas.  In the mouth this medium bodied wine was not heavy but had constant, forceful delivery of the flavors.  There are black fruits and gravelly flavors, assertive coarse tannins, and notes of smoked bacon.  Everything starts spiraling out in the finish and verges on losing control.  ** Now.
