This is a powerfully flavored wine which works well with similarly flavorful food. Try dark sauces, even some with dark fruit. Makes a great reduction sauce. Try spiced or BBQ pork, lamb, or beef. Seared, spiced Ahi is a favorite, as is smoked salmon. Braised short ribs in Syrah reduction sauce!
This wine includes fruit from the Tierra Alta, Larner, and Verna's vineyards. Individual barrels from Thompson and Rusack Vineyards were also included.
