Russell Syrah 2014


Russian River Valley Syrah

"Boysenberry, gooseberry, blueberries, plum and a nice dusty quality to the tannins with red cherry and flavors of herbs - wild sage and fennel as well as mint that subtly linger on the palate, and, of course, being a Syrah, there is definitely a distinct flavor of iron towards the smooth finish of the palate. This Syrah really lends itself to a hearty feast such as a hunter’s stew of slow roasted pork and compote of mushroom. Lamb, venison and other gamey meats will all be fine pairings. Enjoy now through 2024, no decanting necessary." - John Haggard, Sophie's Cellars
