2017 Novelty Hill Stillwater Creek Vineyard Syrah

This wine’s aromatics really jumped out of my glass! Fruity notes of cherries and cherry jam combined with earthy aromas of roasted coffee bean and minerally gravel dust.
As I sipped, I tasted red fruit flavors of raspberries, strawberries, and cherry jam with a healthy dash of white pepper. With plenty of acidity– it was bright and tart– but also quite light, especially for a Syrah. I enjoyed its delicate manner and subtle tannins that gently caressed the sides of my tongue. It would surely complement many different types of dishes!
Food pairing suggestions:
Roasted vegetables with crushed hazelnuts, sausage and gouda risotto, pot roast.
