Wine review: Charles Smith 2007 Boom Boom Syrah Columbia Valley

Boom Boom SyrahCharles Smith (a real person’s name) was named Winemaker of the Year by Food and Wine Magazine and he’s a serious contender for wackiest too. But his wines are serious. This syrah is ripe without being sweet, with raspberry, tobacco, white pepper, and fragrant vanilla. It’s austere with strong tannins and definitely a food wine. A roast beef would meet its match in this wine. 4 stars out of 5. Sweetness=1 out of 10 (dry to sweet). $20
