This is a very tasty Syrah based Rhone blend from Columbia Valley. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.
Good right out of the bottle, but better as it opens up and shows the tannins and structure. Would be nice to revisit it in a couple of years.
Fruit forward with nice complexity. A good quality wine. Spicy, tasty and tangy.
I paired it with a beautiful view, but was even better with the Brie cheese.
