Wine Review: This pitch black colored Syrah from the Russian River Valley is impressive. It opens with an inviting mild blueberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused Maine blueberry with notes of cherry-cola and oak. The finish is dry and its refined medium tannins stick around for quite a while. This Syrah is terrific and will be very well received. I would pair it beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
