Wine Review: This ruby colored Syrah from Fess Parker is a Very Good option for readers to consider. It opens with a mild blueberry like bouquet with a hint of spice. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, smooth, and balanced. The flavor profile is a very juicy black raspberry with hints of strawberry licorice and a touch of black pepper and oak. The finish is quite dry and its noticeable tannins linger for quite some time. We thought this wine would pair well with grilled barbecue chicken. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: On the nose you will find aromas of blackberries, smoke, pressed meats with BBQ spices, blueberries, and vanilla. Deep, full flavors of blackberries, chocolate, boysenberries, and black licorice will lead to a long lingering finish.
