Intense inky color with gamey aromatics of of cured bacon and oregano. Velvety texture with structured acidity make it very food-friendly. Dark fruit flavors with lingering dark chocolate and black plum on the finish.
I love Syrah, and we as consumers tend to forget how seductive these wines can draw us in. Every time I have this bottle, it just sends me back to France. It’s wonderfully exotic and pretty; red fruit notes of pomegranate with touches of blue fruits, savory herbs and hints of olive, which is a very Mediterranean component. Refined and linear on the palate with embracing tobacco, fresh cracked white pepper, and cocoa.
Try it with: Pork Chile Verde with Avocado & Spinach Salad
“Amazing draw of herbs, spice & fruit; a gorgeous foil from the Earthy notes of the wine and the spice and Earthier tones of the dish.”
