J. Lohr South Ridge Syrah
This wine carries aromas of ripe berry, plum, violet and lavender that lead into a palate loaded with flavors of black currant and purple flowers. Polished tannins and just-right acidity frame it all.
Varietal aromas of black cherry, blueberry, anise and black tea are lifted by barrel aging on lees in a 60/40 blend of American and French oak barrels. A touch of floral Viognier and white pepper on the palate, with baking spice on the finish.
Pair with a slow-roasted pork shoulder and herbed potatoes.For simple, casual fare, try a classic BLT.
