2016 / Other Wines

2016 Syrah

With ripe black fruit flavors balanced by fresh structure and accented with smoky, savory elements and barrel spice, the 2016 JUSTIN Syrah is a full bodied New World take on a classic grape variety from the Northern Rhone in France. This limited offering gets along well with a wide range of palates and food pairings, showing that Paso Robles Syrah can show depth and character, but can be versatile enough to bring along on a Summer’s picnic.

TASTING NOTES

Appearance: Bright, dark purple ruby core, slightly lighter at the rim with noticeable staining on the glass.

Aroma: Aromatic with ripe black cherry, ripe blackberry and red fruit highlights with smoky vanilla and cinnamon barrel spice, subtle cracked pepper, camphor and leather.

Palate: Full bodied with black cherry and blackberry jam fruit, baking spice and smoky notes on entry. The mid-palate continues with leather and savory dried herbs leading to a long, crisp finish with lingering black fruit, subtle minty camphor notes and black olive surrounded with firm dusty tannins.


FOOD PAIRINGS

A great mix of bold ripe fruit, savory elements and balancing textures, the 2016 JUSTIN Syrah is perfect with an aged Gouda or Pecorino Romano cheese, grilled lamb or a ratatouille made with grilled vegetables and balsamic.
