Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A rather unusual Syrah, and definitely not one for those who imagine that Syrah’s best work is doon as a macho, blockbuster, dense-packed vinous analogue to 10-40 motor oil. This wine is all about elegance and finesse and is a study in rotundone—the peppery/bacon-fatty molecule that is the essence of Syrah, and is optimally expressed in cooler vintages and the coolest sites. This wine has the body of a proper Burgundy, lovely, fresh acidity, light to medium weight and just exudes white, black and pink pepper.
Food Pairing Notes
Aldo Sohm, the genius sommelier at Le Bernardin, loves to play with unexpected food and wine pairings and one of his favorite tricks is to deploy red wine with fish. He once poured a Côte-Rôtie from a very cool vintage with swordfish, and the pairing was one of the most felicitous one in memory. I’d serve the wine on the cool side and enjoy it with pepper-crusted tuna, scallops or monkfish. Other ideas include grilled swordfish, pork chops or duck breast with cherry compote, shredded beef tamales, pork chile verde and birria de res.
