Reserva Alentejo 2014


I didn’t find it particularly interesting when I tried it with Coravin, but that’s because it’s a full bodied wine with high tannins that should be decanted. Today I’m tasting it with a stewed roast and it is delicious. Deep ruby color = #alicantebouschet #syrah and #touriganacional warm climate #alentejo medium+ aromas with ripe red cherries, ripe raspberry and red plums. Balsamic touches and on the palate it’s dry with medium acidity and medium+ ripe tannins. Medium+ finish. — a month ago

Les Jalets Crozes Hermitage Syrah 2016


Solid #syrah with #gamey touches and that sort of lavender black olive spice with potential for bottle aging. Very pleasant. #rhone #hermitage #crozeshermitage — 3 months ago

Cabeça de Toiro Reserva Touriga Nacional Castelão 2014

40/30/30 % blend of #touriganacional, #castelão and #syrah ; Fragrant with wild cherry, vanilla, touch of cola. Succulent acidity, tannins that enfold your mouth and plenty of length in the finish. #portugueseredblend — 5 months ago

Killer #Syrah with amazing freshness #highacidity at the same time as 14.8% alc. so #staritahills all the black pepper and violets on the nose and all the ripe tannins and blackberry candy on the palate. @Ryan Zotovich — 7 months ago

Columbia Valley Syrah 2017

Nice #washingtonstate #syrah for the price. Give it a bit of time to let loose in the glass, some pepper, fruit-forward and just enough acidity and medium tannin structure. Good stuff for ~$12 at Total Wine. — 4 months ago

La Vialliere Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2015

Delicious, bramble fruit wave greets you up front but then you get that wet stone taste and a little bit of spice at the end; velvety tannins trail off for a while. Great #rhone #syrah wine but the 2015 bottle prices seem to be getting a little out of hand. This Syrah paired pretty well with a Lamb Souvlaki plate at a BYOB Greek restaurant - I have to say the wine outshone the kebabs, though. — 8 months ago
