Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Syrah from Dutton opens with blackberry and wet stone bouquet with hints of black cherry and boysenberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, round and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty blueberry and blackberry tea blend with notes of crushed stone and black cherry. I also detected hints of light loam, oak, and black licorice. The finish is dry, and its refined moderate tannins are nicely sustained. This Syrah is versatile and food friendly. It paired quite nicely with my ribeye steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Cherry Ridge is an example of New World nose meets an Old World palate. The nose of cherries and plums mingle with touches of violet, black pepper, and bacon. The palate maintains the fruit notes and bursts with ripe plum and cherry notes. This cooler climate Syrah preserves the acidity to balance the fruit forward palate. Moderate, firm tannins release as the wine opens and will continue to do so with aging. The firm tannins enrich the complexity of this balanced, full-bodied wine, which make this a favorite pairing to barbecue flavors, especially with cuts like brisket, sausage, and ribs.
