Red Wine by Obsidian Ridge from California. A beast of a Syrah, the 2012 brims with classic, savory aromas of boysenberry, concentrated blackberry jam, coee, black pepper and tar. is Syrah is quite modern in its avors: ripe and plush with loads of dark fruit. Yet, it also boasts hints of bacon-fat and dark-roast coee that add to the exciting character of this wine. Youthful upon release, this Syrah will mature well for as much as a decade. The marriage of Obsidian Ridge Vineyard terroir with the Syrah grape is always intense and magical, and 2012 is no exception.
Red Wine by Saint Cosme from Cote Rotie, France - Rhone. Deep violet in color, the Saint Cosme Cote Rotie displays classic aromas of graphite, cold ash, and rose with penetrating flavors of black fruit and savory olive. Full bodied with pleasant acidity, this Cote Rotie finishes with a subtle peppery note. The ideal accompaniment to roasted vegetables, roast game and soft cheeses.
Red Wine by Maison Nicolas Perrin from French, France - regions. Bright ruby in color with purple undertones. The nose is rich with red fruit, full-bodied and very harmonious with aromas of blackcurrant, blueberries along with notes of spice. The attack is fresh, the wine is lively and mineral. The tannins are soft and round and give immediate pleasure. The balance between alcohol and acidity reveals a harmonious wine. The softness and finesse of Viognier allows to create a wine that is more powerful and full bodied than a simple Syrah.
