After really enjoying Red Car’s Pinot Noir, I also wanted to highlight their Sonoma Coast Syrah. I actually enjoyed this a bit more than the Pinot because I felt there was more depth in the palate (even though I totally liked the Pinot). The wine is 100% Syrah with 13.7% alcohol. It retails for around $35 a bottle.
This Syrah is rich in color with earthy aromas of dark fruit, tobacco, and spice. The earthiness continues in the palate which has flavors of tart cherries, anise, and smoke. Healthy acidity and balanced alcohol. A beautiful and delicious Syrah!
Food Pairing Suggestions – Pair with leg of lamb, a pulled-pork sandwich, or a grilled sirloin steak.
My Wine Rating – A-
