When you’re in the eye of a storm, there’s only one thing to do: Treat yourself to syrah and stew, the ultimate in cool weather comfort.

Here are three solid syrah picks:

Rocca, 2007 Grigsby Vineyard, Yountville, $45

Bradford Mountain, 2007 Grist Vineyard, Dry Creek Valley, $24

Four Vines, 2008 Bailey Vineyard, $35

A footnote — With the storms ahead, here’s my advice: Invest in a sturdy umbrella and a syrah or two.
