No Party Crashers at Slanted House

If you have the chutzpah to crash a White House party, admittedly, you’ve got balls!  Big ones!  But, here’s the deal… It takes more than that to bust in at Slanted House.  No faking, not a chance.  Slanted House, 2006, Syrah, Moreseco Vineyard in Napa is all about the tongue behind closed doors. A solid punch of acid slaps down mid-center, while choco-cherry and blackberry ripples around the edges.  Solid fruit is buried under that acid, and who knows what else you’ll find buried a few layers down. If you stay with it…dig deeper – jammy and juiciness eventually is revealed with solid tannins in a suck-harder, coffee-caramel fuzziness wrapped up in a simple, clean finish.  Slanted House, 2007, Syrah Drystack Vineyard is dark and vibrant with velvet inkiness. Soft black plum, cherry and blackberry revels in its nudity across your palette.  Good stuff here with black coffee deepness, bold tannins and a generous finish.  All I’m saying is if I’m the party planner and you’re not on the list…don’t bother.

  1. Teri, I love your description. It makes me want to go out and find this wine. Is it available in Seattle? Do you know where?

  2. Hey, you’re back! I missed you…

    Can’t wait to read your posts about the trip to Napa.
