2013 Syrah Paso Robles
This luscious Syrah exudes hedonistic black fruit notes of blackberry and blackcurrant accompanied by sweet spices of vanilla, nutmeg and oak. With subsequent sips, notes of cassis and elderberry are moderated by secondary flavors of fresh-baked bread and sweet oak. This Syrah begs for barbeque with its deep berry flavors and smooth, chocolate finish. It performs well with an elegant slow-cooked chicken with fig reduction or more casual smoky bacon burgers.
