Wine Review: This slightly opaque and very dark ruby colored Syrah from Ramey opens with a mild black raspberry and plum bouquet with hints of leather. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, elegant and velvety. The flavor profile is a tasty gentle plum with hints of minerality, black pepper, and a touch of oak. The finish is rather dry and its dusty tannins are really sticky. The panel suggested pairing this very good Syrah with prime rib. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Our Syrahs are grown in the cool climate of Sonoma Coast which offers a style reminiscent of the Northern Rhone regions of Hermitage and Cornas: aromas and flavors of smoked meat, white pepper, green olive and grapefruit.
