Stands up well to grilled rack of lamb. Nice fruit underneath partly hidden by a modest cloak of oak. I prefer the 2102 Domaine Faury St. Joseph we had last night.
Do you find this review helpful? Yes - No
- Crimsom color - Big wine, but balanced. Extremely dark color, almost black, with black cherry taste predominant. Needed to be served w meat such as lamb or steak. Overwhelmed chicken and salmon.
Tasted at the winery. Tasted alongside the '10 Syrah/Grenache. Color was extremely clear with some bricking. This clearly had some age on it with dusty fruit and dusty tannins.
A Tasting at Ridge (Ridge Vineyards Lytton Springs Estate): Deep core with a light meniscus. Aromas of wood, cedar and red fruit, cinnamon and meat. Medium-bodied with flavors of dried earth, red fruit and spice. Still quite tannic and even a bit austere.
With Country ham, scalloped potato, and carrots.Medium garnet, dry, great body, good depth of flavor and length. Perfectly mature right now.
