It's no surprise that this Amador Syrah spent 21 months in French oak. The wine is very tannic, savory with a wisp of pepper. Still, for a bigger, more tannic style mountain of Syrah it's got some good acidity midpalate and through the finish and could be interesting with a rich serving of duck, venison or game.
