2021 J. Lohr Estates South Ridge Syrah, Paso Robles, USA (750ml)
Deeply colored with vibrant purple and magenta hues. Varietal aromas of black cherry and fresh blueberry are accented by black tea, bergamot, and lilac. The juicy and spicy structure of this northern Rhône cultivar is lengthened and lifted by the inclusion of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Roussanne, and Viognier. Try with spicy chicken fajitas or oven-baked baby back ribs.
This is a very satisfying Syrah for a rather stunning price. Lush and generous aromas of baked berry, hot spice cake and a touch of crushed rock show on the nose. The palate is brooding in cassis, boysenberry pudding and baking spice flavors, framed by impressively deep tannins. Best Buy

You would be hard-pressed to find another Syrah at this price with such admirable qualities: Grapes grown on lime-laden and gravelly soils exude texture, color, and flavor that wines four times the cost are lucky to achieve.Showing hearty notes of violets, slate, and balsamic, the palate of this concentrated red is lined in satin, with sumptuous flavors of dark chocolate, sweet earth, white pepper, and blueberry.
