Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Syrah from Washington State opens with a light black currant and moist pipe tobacco like bouquet. On the palate, this full bodied wine was smooth, slightly tart with black currant flavors with notes of dark chocolate and pepper. The finish is dry and its managed tannins linger slightly. The panel felt is wine needs some decanting to bring out its best. Then they would pair it with beef bourguignon. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Cadaretta Syrah has dark cherry aromas that open into layered earthy complexities, with inky, cured meat notes. Flavors of cherry and spice lead to silky tannins and a lingering finish with earthy undertones. This finely balanced wine opens with aeration, and is a great match with food, especially grilled meats and Northwest salmon.
