@Chappellet_Wine 2005 Syrah – Takes Me Back to Pritchard Hill

Rather than my traditional inclusion of the wine label, I’m instead including a picture of the inside of the facility at Chappellet on Pritchard Hill in the Napa Valley.  This serene location with the natural light shining in was magnificent.  Opening up the 2005 Syrah with a good friend last night, we were all transported back to our visit to Chappellet 2 years ago (it’s worth a visit).  The Syrah was more of a traditional Rhone varietal with some ground pepper notes holding up the fruit – translation is that it’s not a fruity exhibition, but rather a more balanced, restrained presentation that we enjoyed.
