The choice for my latest Snooth contribution was automatic and without hesitation: the 2012 MacLaren Atoosa’s Vineyard Syrah, Russian River Valley, Sonoma County. I fell in love with this syrah a couple of years ago. After publishing this, winemaker Steve Law confessed that he made this syrah for himself and it’s his “wine geek” syrah. That’s why it’s right up my alley. Enjoy reading about this syrah and the rest of list of suggestions from my wine writing peers. Oh, and stay tuned for an upcoming review of MacLaren Tasting Lounge on AmericanWineryGuide.com.
