2012 Syrah

35.00

“There are many approaches to making fine Syrah. Here the generous use of 50% new oak barrels (half French, half Russian) puts a toasty frame around a solid core of pure blue and purple fruits. The wine is rich, ripe and round, with plush flavors that are irresistible.”   — Reviewed by Paul Gregutt for Wine Enthusiast: 90 points

“The wine leans toward a smoky, savory and gamy style, backed by blackberry, blueberry and maple syrup tones. Plum skin tannins and the influence of those 50% new French oak barrels make this toasty and sturdy with pomegranate acidity that should play well with a duck breast.”   — Reviewed by Great Northwest Wine: “Recommended”

Food pairings:  Lamb dishes, duck, sausages, grilled meats, and cheeses such as Camembert or Beecher’s Smoked Flagship.
