Syrah Blend

Les Vignerons De La Méditerranée

Mythique Syrah Blend 2009

Syrah, Grenache e Carignan.

Criado por respeito à tradição.

O Mythique surge a partir de 1990 com a reunião, no sul da França, de diversos vinhedos que se propuseram um desafio mítico : dar origem a um vinho que expressasse toda originalidade de seu terroir Languedoc.

A coruja foi escolhida como símbolo de seu trabalho paciente em vinhedos de regiões intocadas em homenagem à deusa Minerva que ensina a humanidade o segredo de se aproveitar a natureza.

Servir este vinho de vermelho rubi intenso a 16-18⁰C acompanhado de queijos que acompanham o gosto sutil e concentrado e que oferece em sua estrutura tantos suaves e aveludado com sabores de temperos e fruta negra. Aromas de garrigue (ervas silvestres), pimenta e groselha preta.

Bouquet de Syrah Vin de Pays de l'Ardèche 2019

Second of five fun, fantastic, and frugal wines for everyday drinking. The kind you “actually” want to share, because you “can!” IGP not AOC Syrah from Rhone. Lively magenta color with a mostly funky and slightly fruity nose. Juicy and vibrant with cranberry, some moist mushroom and a hint of dry spice on the pallet. Full bodied, low alcohol, medium acidity, medium plus tannings, and a savory but short finish. Around fifteen bucks a bottle and bound to impress anyone and everyone. Do decant or aerate properly, and just wait, wait for it to open up! — 3 days ago

Cuvée du Plessy Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2016

Lyle Fass
9.5

A wow nose. Olives and wild flowers. Sweet berry fruit. Wow. Lavender. Violets. Purple olives. Incredibly floral. 9.6 nose but will add more complexity and layers. So elegant and aristocratic with terrific tannic grip but they are so fresh and ripe. Wow the inner mouth aromas are something else here. Terrific concentration and depth. Chewy, ripe and lingering. What persistence. Such a classic expression of Cote Rotie. Plessy is reliable and just textbook. — 4 days ago

Monier de La Sizeranne Hermitage Syrah 2011

9.3

While I’ve been a big fan of Chapoutier’s other bottlings, this is my first experience with the Sizeranne. This is a selection of fruit from Méal, Bessards and Greffieux.

At almost 11yrs old, I wasn’t sure if this needed some time to blow off funk or not, so I consumed from bottle and opted not to decant, which I think worked well. The aromatics here totally stole the show…there was a roasted plum combo with savory tomato stew type notes that were so unique…a rollercoaster balance of dark fruit and tart/herbal flair. Palate was as expected with red and and black currant, mocha dusted black cherries, tart iron and black pepper. Really pretty highlight of iron all the way through but not to where it dominated everything. The tart fruit and tangy/savory iron play was right up my alley. This seems to be in a prime drinking window and likely hangs here the next 5-7yrs.

Syrah & Stems 2019

#kosherwineSunday

Dark purple in color with a wide purplish rim.

On the nose cherries, black plums, barnyard, oak, spices, licorice, violets, espresso, vegetables, herbs, earth, wet leaves and black pepper. Nice complexity on the nose.

Full bodied with medium acidity and smooth.

Dry on the palate with currants, black cherries, plums, earth, oak, vegetables, black pepper, tobacco leaf, spices, coffee, wet leaves, herbs and earth.

Medium length on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very interesting Syrah from Israel. Showing a great smooth mouthfeel and very aromatic.

Still very young and needs a few years in the bottle to mature properly. A good quality wine with good potential for aging. Would be nice to revisit it in 5 years.

Feels very much like a young Northern Rhone. A little stinky as well, which is nice to see.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly, so be patient.

100% Syrah grapes were fermented on the stems and aged for 11 months in French oak barrels. Kosher and unfiltered.

13% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$62.

@"Odedi" I’ve heard about Mia Luce and have wanted to try it for some time now. Last I checked it wasn’t available outside of Israel. I’ll have to check again.

Les Eygas Cornas Syrah 2016

9.4

Big, deep and boisterous nose. So much dark fruit but also olive and game and massive amounts of granitic crunch. Superb aromas. Wide open. Palate is a classic 16. So refined, so elegant and lovely granite that is very sapid on the palate. Juicy and so clean. Wonderful and drinking so well now. Still no rush. It’s amazing how good this is for so little.

Wow this got insane overnight. Meaty and granite driven nose. Gorgeous red and blackberry fruit. More red than yesterday. Stunning nose. Palate is opulent, incisive and super complex with great juiciness and length. 9.3 to 9.4 overnight. Balanced, fresh and pure.

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2016

Elegant nose with black current, plum and black raspberry fruit with accents of graphite and tamari. Palate shows high toned cassis, plum and pomegranate fruit with sweet fruit tannins and energetic, zesty acidity. Mineral driven berry fruit tones dominate the finish. So precisely balanced that it is throughly enjoyable now but demonstrates the potential for and easy 7 to 10 years of development. — 16 hours ago

Griffin's Lair Sonoma Coast Syrah 2013

Now this is a very interesting and unique Syrah from Sonoma.

Stinky nose with lots of tar, chocolates and wood.

Full bodied and bold with nice complexity and very fruity on the palate.

Showing black currants, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, vanilla, spices, espresso, cola, vegetables, dark chocolates, tar, earth, peppercorn, bitter herbs and barnyard.

Powerful and rich. Very extracted and fruit forward.

This is definitely one of those "in your face" kind of wines. Not for everyone, but I enjoyed it.

Feels very young for a 9 year old.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A small production of only 13 barrels. Unfiltered and unfined.

13.8% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Elk Cove Vineyards

Les Collines Walla Walla Valley Syrah 2014

9.2

One of those wines where I have no idea when/how/where I acquired it. Didn’t know what to expect, so I opened this with dinner.

Dark red-purple in the glass. For being Walla Walla, this seemed balanced as expected with zero traces of funk. I wouldn’t say there is a total sense of place for this wine but it is varietally correct in style. Spiced plum and charcoal aromatically, as well as dark floral notes. On the palate, it is filled with dark roasted mocha and high percentage dark cocoa. Finish shows a dark red (black cherry) and black fruit (blackberries, black currant) dominated profile. I consumed this from bottle over the course of an evening and it showed well…a splash decant wouldn’t hurt, but this is mostly in a drink-now/over the next 3-5yrs phase with regards to structure.

I did not realize they made Syrah. Have only had their Pinots and Pinot Gris…which can be very good.

@Bryan Kesting : Based on my research, it seems this was a one off as I haven’t come across any other vintages for this.

Open Champion Syrah 2016

Fantastic Syrah! Very smooth and full of fruit. Got off work early for the long weekend. Great way to start it! This pro golfer lives here in Ocala though it’s produced in South Africa. A little pricey for me but really wanted to try it. 👍 after letting it breathe and taking it outside while I cook on the grill, it now has a smokiness on the nose. Very pleasant! I love it — 4 days ago
