This Syrah leads with a very pretty nose—floral but spicy, and redolent of blueberry. On the palate, it offers dry, peppery red berry flavors, but a wave of charry smoke tends to overpower. Pair it with an equally smoky dish—mesquite, grilled meat—and it might temper the bite. Overall though, a good wine, from a region that is producing interesting Syrahs.
