Wine Review: This dark red colored Syrah from Dutton Estate opens with a cigar box and red currant bouquet with hints of clove and red licorice. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and savory. The flavor profile is cherry and menthol blend with notes oak and black plum. I also detected some hints of strawberry licorice, milk chocolate, and stony minerality. The finish is dry, and its moderate tannins linger and are nicely extended. This Syrah would pair well with your favorite beef stew recipe. 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.
