Lytton Estate Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel Blend 2016

For some reason I love Ridge Zins with a grilled burger. Difficult to describe the notes in this wine.

On the nose: black pepper, blackberry, anise, menthol, floral, slight blueberry and....cherry cola? On the tongue: blackberry, cherry, baking spice, tobacco on the finish. Grippy tannins at first but mellows out extremely fast. Petite sirah cuts through burger fat nicely. Another nice Zin blend from Ridge.

Perfect wine for the burger and chicken salt fries at Frankie... body, hint of tobacco, spice—didn’t require me to think too much. Harmonizer. — 4 years ago

Sequel Columbia Valley Syrah 2014

Out of the 4 wines opened at The Bird, this one edged out the Numanthia 12 by a hair. Quite similar profiles IMO. This Walla Walla Syrah was quite enjoyable with dark black fruit on the front. Consistent with the 2015 I tasted a bit ago but IMO, this one had a bit more of a smoked beef flavor in the middle that the dark sweet and still youthful fruit gave way. Chose this as the "food" wine since most chose the Bird Burger (a grass fed beef burger)....it went rather well. Popular with the crowd of novices and winos, the smoky finish was very complementary. Maybe I might acquire a few of these WA Syrahs afterall to have for these purposes....(not a word, @Shay A .... 😆) — 4 years ago

Lol @Shay A the pairing of this wine with a grass-fed beef with that more pungent beef note was really incredible. I could imagine opening up a few Washington Syrahs at Classic and getting some sliders delivered from somewhere that used grass-fed beef. That would be a really awesome afternoon!
