2019 Wood Family Vineyards Syrah – Perfect Compliment for Triple Digit Temperatures
Here is a link to hear more about this remarkable winery and their award winning wines! https://californiawinesandwineries.com/2016/02/10/wood-family-vineyards-2/
This wine is destined to be one of the Wood Family Vineyards quick sellers. First on the eyes, a deep almost “blackish” color but with a rim of mesmerizing magenta/purple hue and medium heavy viscosity. On the nose, berries, leather and spices are the predominate aromas that waft into your senses. But on the palate is where robust, dense and lively blackberry and blueberry flavors engulf the mouth with the fruit and black pepper/sweet pipe tobacco. On the finish, velvety texture and very subtle tannins caress the back of the mouth to provide a long lasting enjoyable tasting. Listed at $36/bottle and only 110 cases produced.
The Food and Wine Pairing
When the temperature hits triple digits, the food choices get paired down quickly. Correspondingly, the red wine choices follow. Last night had a taco salad with lettuce, fresh diced tomatoes, sliced purple onion, meat sautéed in a “taco mix”, cheese and covered in a chipotle salsa. Paired with the 2019 Syrah made a refreshing and enjoyable meal combination.
