2006 Tobin James Silver Reserve Syrah, Paso Robles. Alcohol level: 15%. List Price: $48, but paid around $25 through wine club. It gave gobs of black fruit on the nose and upfront. In the middle we found blackberries, blueberries, some pepper and spice, smooooooth tannin, and little heat as the gobs overcame the alky. It finished nicely. We matched with St Patrick's day dinner of thick grillpanned loin lambchops, pureed blue Hubbard squash well doctored, and baguette dipped in garlicy EVOO. Mmmmmmmm good!
