Barden Syrah 2012
Produced and bottled by Margerum Wine Company. "Barden Syrah is shaped and sculptured. Its drapes reveal dark rooms full of the unknown; frighteningly sinister, packed, and powerful. Ours is a swirling worldly vision, moody but aware. We dared and entered this world with trepidation. Syrah is our blood-right and our passion; we realize we are on the road to madness. It lives near the boar's den . . ." Dark magenta with carmine (the general term for some deep red colors that are very slightly purplish) and a blackish hue. Aromas of dark berries and dried fruits coupled with a myriad of barrel complexities. There is certainly all the hallmarks of cold-climate Syrah—bacon fat, rare roast beef, and peppercorns (white, pink, and black) with a rich mix of earthiness. Very mouth coating and savory with an abundance of fruit, soft tannins, and plenty of pepper and spice. Balanced, firm, and polished—a wine that serves well with appropriate cuisine but will be at its best with some aging in a cool dark cellar.
