Yummy Syrah from Mendocino. Aromas of red fruit including raspberry.  Also, a clean lavender aroma mixed with green and sweet pepper.  On the palate, vegetal flavors really come through as the green pepper and earthy taste takes precedence.  Medium acidity and tannins.  A solid Mendocino Syrah.

Note: The goal of Cork and Social’s reviews/ratings is to provide characteristics of the wine and not to sway a wine drinker from trying any wine – even those that carry lower ratings.  The ratings presented are those of the wine reviewer, thus it is THE WINE REVIEWER’S RATING – not your rating. You may have a completely different take on the wines that are reviewed.

  Cork and Social bases its ratings primarily on 5 characteristics: balance, length, intensity, complexity and expressiveness.  Cork and Social is independent in its evaluation of every wine.  Ultimately, the Cork and Social wine rating scale is the same scale used by Robert Parker whereby:

96-100 Extraordinary
90-95 Outstanding
80-89 Above Average to Excellent
70-79 Average
60-69 Below Average
< 59 Appalling

The recommended drinking window is by no means absolute.  It is based on the wine reviewer’s experience aging other, similarly structured wines.  Ultimately, it is the wine drinker’s decision when to drink their wine.  Some wines age well and others do not.  The wine reviewer is merely trying to provide some guidance to the wine drinker.
