From the Midi, a wine with a rich, tangy, animal earthiness to the blackberry flavors, and as dry as can be. It's complex but wild, untamed. It doesn't flatter on its own, but needs food. There's a quality a chef will appreciate and exploit. From Bonny Doon.
From the irrepressible Randall Grahm’s Languedoc label, this Syrah boasts aromas of sour berries, cedar and saddle leather that evolve on the palate into indistinct black murkiness. Narrowly constructed, with a tart, charcoally finish.
