Look how dark this wine is! Its beautiful garnet hues foretell the wine’s deep and complex nature. On the nose, dried raspberry notes leap from the glass, along with toasty cedar and a spicy under layer. Notes of lavender lurk in the bouquet, which is mirrored on the palate and joined by flavors of blackberry and red plum. Nicely balanced, the finish reminds of dark chocolate covered cherries. Syrah romances garlic so try this with your favorite marinara served with meatballs over linguini and topped with shaved Grana Padano.
