Cline Syrah 2007, Sonoma County, USA


Syrah has adapted itself to many different climates and geography and Cline produces a Sonoma County spin on grape worthy of note. The label reads it explodes with fresh blueberries and black cherry jammy fruit, and as much that may be true, the real outstanding accomplishment of this wine is that it does push the sweetness envelope, without compromising what you expect from a Syrah.  Whether it be a Rhône or an Australian offering, Syrah is a dark coloured, at times robust varietal. 

With U2 we have come accustomed to anthematic songs celebrating the heroes of human struggle. But, along the way came a beautiful, sweet song “The Sweetest Thing.”  Sure, the song lacks the signature rally calls and the military band rhythm section, but by stepping away from the familiar the band showed us an interesting side and it was really enjoyable.  So if you can live without every bottle of wine you drink being a “Sunday Bloody Sunday” enjoy this wine with and its sweet sixteen groove.
