2003 Firestone Syrah, Santa Ynez Valley ($18)

WINE FIND

March 01, 2006|By MICHAEL DRESSER

This plump, ripe, well-rounded red wine offers excellent value and approachability for a California syrah. Its intense flavors of blackberry, herbs and chocolate coat the palate, but its tannins are soft - making aging a choice rather than a requirement. Serve with lamb, game, stews.
