2019 Hampton Vineyard Syrah
Syrah is a dark-skinned, hearty grape that is healthy, early-ripening and easy to work with for both grower and winemaker alike. Dark berries and black plum aromas practically leap from a glass of this 2019 Hampton Vineyard Syrah with layers of dried herbs, tar, smoke and BBQ meat to follow. Blackberry and blueberry compote rule the palate, while leather, grilled herbs, dark chocolate and scorched earth lead to a long, satisfying finish.
This richly textured, bold Syrah pairs particularly well with grilled meats and vegetables, wild game, or beef stew.
