This is going to sell out quick………trust me! The McPrice Myers Right Hand Man Syrah is rich, decadent and opulent and it costs less than $20.
I just got seven cases in, and I am taking a case home so that leaves me with six to sell.
McPrice Myers started making wine in California’s Central Coast in 2002. In a very short period of time, founder and winemaker Mac Myers has established his winery as one of the rising stars of the region. I tasted Mac’s Right Hand Man recently, and I agree with that assessment 100%. I’m not going to beat around the bush on this one — this is easily one of the best under-$20 domestic Syrah’s I’ve ever tasted.
To make sure you get some of this one, please stop by the store or email me at email@example.com. I’ll be glad to hold your wine through the end of the sale period.
McPrice Myers Right Hand Man Syrah 2014 — Sale $17.99/bottle — $15.99/bottle on solid 6-packs — 91 points Vinous Media — On sale through Friday, January 27th!
“Bright violet. Blueberry, cherry compote, dark chocolate and cracked pepper on the pungent, smoke-tinged nose. Smooth, palate-staining black and blue fruit and violet pastille flavors show excellent clarity and pick up a mineral element with air. The peppery note comes back strong on a very long, penetrating finish shaped by supple, even tannins. Drink now through 2025. $25 suggest retail.” – Vinous Media
Fruit is source from the west side of Paso Robles and Santa Barbara County for this wine. Mac includes small bits (5% each) of Petite Sirah for color/pepper and Viognier for exotic aromatics. After fermentation, the wine is aged for 22 months in 10% new French and American oak. The resulting wine is a beauty! Deeply colored, almost opaque and exhibiting heady aromas and flavors of cassis, dark raspberry, dark cherry, smoky herb, bacon fat, and on and on. This could easily compete with $40 to $50 Syrahs from anywhere in the world.
As I said before, with Table Wine offering this one up at pretty much the best price in the country, this will not last long. Cheers and happy drinking in Asheville!
