McClean 2005 Syrah (Paso Robles)
Lean but dry and clean, with some tough tannins framing flavors of cherries, grilled meat and black pepper. Drink now.
McClean 2007 Ruby Syrah (Paso Robles)
A bit too heavy for a rosé, with stewed berry-cherry flavors and some astringent tannins. Needs greater delicacy and elegance.
