This cooler climate Syrah harkens back to old-world flavors: masculine yet delicate, with sophisticated depth and a highly expressive palate. Take in violets and eucalyptus on the nose with layers of dark berries and chocolate. This is an age-worthy wine that we can proudly term "intellectually satisfying"!
Syrah is an easy food-pairing wine. Try with BBQ spare ribs and chicken, duck, grilled meats and veggies, hamburgers, roasted leg of lamb, aged hard cheeses such as smoked Gouda and Spanish Manchego with spicy Italian salumi.
