2021 J Bookwalter Winery 'Readers' Syrah, Columbia Valley, USA (750ml)
Our 2021 Readers Syrah is very expressive aromatically with beautiful color shining through the glass. Rich royal purple hues gleaming through this wine really set the tone before you even take your first sip. The aromatics and flavors are ripe plum, dark chocolate-covered cherries, boysenberry, and wild forest fruits. There are also savory components that have come together harmoniously with the fruit aspects of this wine with forest floor and black pepper notes coming through. Unsweetened cocoa, chocolate truffle, and espresso expressions dance through the drinking experience. This wine is soft, juicy, and creamy in texture from your first sip to your last. This wine finishes savory with silky tannins leaving your palate satisfied.
A wine that fills the air with the aroma of squid ink risotto is just fine with me. The blackberries, violets and traces of toffee were nice bonuses. Flavors like dried dates and blackcap raspberries, with shockingly brisk acidity and sturdy tannins.
