The 2009 Syrah is a delicious example of why so many people are fanatic about Syrah. This is a wine you first drink with your eyes. A dark and dense purple color opens your eyes, while vanilla oak, a slight hint of green olive, plum, and chocolate open your nose. Many things can describe this wine: bright, fruity, balanced, bold, round, and luscious wine with a long and slightly oaky finish. The flavors of this complex wine will leave you with an extremely pleasant aftertaste. This wine is perfectly paired with a rich meal such as bold meats, game, and heavy sauces.
