Great Value


With all that’s going on in the Belharra Syrah 2016, it comes back to the spice. Its roasted, peppery spice reminds me of mole sauce. That and oil-cured black olives, roast tarragon, mint, rosemary and cinnamon stick. All these savory and spicy sensations frame a mouthful of very ripe black and blueberries. Fine tannins, medium body and solid thread of acidity you expect and want from “Las Madres Vineyard” Syrah. My mind goes all over the place on food pairings. Today, it lands on pulled pork with a cider/vinegar sauce.
