Bridlewood Reserve Syrah

2006
California Central Coast

I could have sniffed this wine forever. Rich and almost floral, for a red. Vanilla, jasmine, dark chocolate-covered cherries; like a box of gourmet chocolates, almost. The flavor is really big and dry, too, but smooth–notes of licorice, smoke and bittersweet chocolate. This is not a dessert wine, but I ate a truffle with this and was not disappointed. (Or maybe anything goes with truffles.) Naturally, this Syrah will stand up to big, hearty dishes, but if guests are lingering over dessert and coffee, you might consider breaking out a bottle of this to keep the party going.

SPECIAL NOTE: $20 at BevMo!, but currently offered as part of their “5 cent” sale (buy one bottle, get the second for just $.05). Purchase now at http://www.bevmo.com
