Syrah is McDowell's flagship wine. Grapes for this vintage came from extremely rare, 76-year-old vines. "Medium-full to full body; forward, rich, concentrated, high exrrnct flavors which still have good balance; ... lingering aftertaste," says the California Grapevine publication.

"[This] 1990 Syrah may be the best California version ... inky red, earthy, peppery, and cherry-flavored with a velvety mouthfeel," says Dee Coutelle of the Chicago Sun-Times.

McDowell's tasting notes reveal, "Plum, jammy cassis, wild blackberries and spice flavors." Syrah 's rich flavor and good structure make it particularly suited for foods that have been roasted, smoked or grilled.
