Vinous has become the best source for insightful wine reviews. It’s tougher to get a good, honest review there than anywhere else. Here’s what Vinous has to say about this humbly priced wine: “The 2020 Syrah Grand Estates impresses with a dusty mix of dried flowers, blackberries and sage. It’s silky and round on the palate, traversing both savory and sweet with mineral-tinged black fruits and hints of licorice. This finishes lightly structured with round tannins while tapering off with pretty violet florals and hints of licorice. There’s a lovely balance as the 2020 really aims to please.” The rating? 90 points (for a top-flight Cali Syrah; are you kidding me?). The price: In most cases, less than $10 per bottle. Just Google “Columbia Crest Grand Estates Syrah 2020 $” and see what you can find.
