Recent wine reviews have gone so far as comparing Syrah as the bigger, bolder cousin to Pinot Noir.  There are reports of Wine Sommeliers labeling the Syrah section of their wine list as ‘Syrah, what “Big Pinot” wants to be.’  The upside, if you like big Pinots and like to save a few bucks, try rekindling your love of Syrah.  Our Featured Wine of the Week includes a 2-year vertical of cool-climate Syrah’s from the Sierra Foothills. We also have a Syrah/Cab Franc blend from the Sierra Foothills included in this promotion.  Get all 3 bottles for $25.  As an added bonus, get a case of wine for $100 and shipping is included in the sales price for CA, OR and NV.  50% off case shipping fees for all other states.  Go to the website to purchase.
