Bartholemew Park is one of the vineyards we really enjoy visiting when we go to Napa & Sonoma. The staff are welcoming and the wine is consistently a winner, plus it’s a great value for the quality. We first went there on a recommendation from another vineyard who sent us there for their Zinfandel (which I’ll discuss when we open the Zin). When we were there last time, they opened up a new release for us which we bought a bottle of as well and that’s the bottle mentioned in the title here.
The Syrah, once it opened up, was silky and spicy all at once which is an interesting combination. I thought it had hints of stone fruit, like a plum as well. Still no scoring, but hopefully this weekend.
