1. I've always liked Mike's SLH Syrahs. They usually have a tangy grapefruitiness to them that makes them particularly interesting. This one is just one such.
This btl was particularly special because of all the little styrofoam triangles clinging to the surface of the btl. Alas, my janitorial staff was not around at night.
