Alpha Estate 2004 Estate Red (Macedonia)

Syrah makes up nearly a third of Alpha Estate's vineyards and 60% of this flagship blend, with Xinomavro and Merlot splitting the difference. One of the effects of vineyards above 2,000 feet is high acidity. Although a bit tart, the wine has plenty of plum and menthol in addition to bitter cherry flavors and a meaty character. The acidity makes this a great match for food, and time may soften this wine.
