Matt, Hi....


The wine in question is produced by the Noah arm of the Hevron Heights Winery. My tasting note follows.

Thanks Daniel.

Had a nice 2005 Recanati Syrah last night. Decanted for about an hour and served with a BBQ brisket. I think that this wine was consumed a little young--after about 2.5 hours it had opened up considerably and was quite delicious. First tastes were good, but not great.

Kol Tuv,
Matt
