Wine Review: This ruby colored Syrah from Andrew Murray is a steal. It is both New and Old world in style. It opens with black cherry bouquet with a hint of plum. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, fresh and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is a tasty mild red plum and blueberry blend with hints of black cherry, faint old oak and gentle minerality. The finish is dry and its flavors and fine tannins drift away nicely. This Syrah is a quaffer and very food friendly. It will pair well with many foods. I would have it with Theresa's homemade meatloaf. "Tous Les Jours" means every day. I could enjoy this wine every day, buy it by the case! Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: The Syrah Tous les Jours is a quintessential Santa Ynez Valley Syrah. It is simultaneously Bold and Balanced, Rich and Smooth, Fruit Forward and Earthy. It is impossibly dark and full-bodied, without ever going over the top. It is heavily inspired by Northern Rhone Syrah (Hermitage) and Australian Shiraz (Barossa Valley). The aromas and flavors are dominated by black cherry, raspberry, white pepper, forest floor and toasty oak. It is absolutely unique and special expression of Syrah. Moreover, It is a style that one can enjoy every day.
