"I bought this bottle fifteen years ago when I was a 21-year-old wine clerk at the venerable Greenblatt’s Deli & Fine Wine Shop on Sunset Blvd. A lot has changed since then. What hasn’t changed: how much I love Syrah. Thank goodness for cold cellars and great bottles. This is feral and delicious and a perfect #SnowDay wine!"
