Sweet Angeline

Martin Ray, "Angeline" Paso Robles Syrah 2001 ($10) -- Santa Rosa, California. This is a 2nd/Value label from Martin Ray, a "legendary" winemaker as the website proclaims. Under new ownership, they have rolled out a few new labels. I have heard good reports on "Angeline", and had tasted this Syrah at Trios recently at $10 per glass (do the math!). I got a big fruit nose with soft, appealing flavors, good balance and a medium finish. Not a lot of depth or complexity, but may be one of the best $10 Syrahs ($10 for the bottle that is!).
