7 Top Syrah Values Tasted 9/2014

3. Andrew Murray Syrah Tous les Jours Santa Ynez Valley (2012)

« Prev Next » 3 of 7
Average price: $14.95 from 1 store
Intense and complex on the nose with cracked black pepper, violet, roasted beef, hints of mushroom and root beer and a lovely, funky, gamy base notes. Bright on entry even if this lacks a touch of acids. A fairly big wine with wonderfully fresh flavors of black fruit, hints of currants and plums, with savory almost peppery accent notes and deep savory, green olive and green cardamom pod nuance on the palate. This is fairly seamless and while fruit driven not fruity per se. The tannins really refresh the palate and the wine shows fine length on the subtly spicy and persistently fruity in that gamy sort of way that Syrah sticks around on the palate. This fills the mouth and while it’s big it’s not terribly weighty, though it does need some pretty intense foods to pair with it. With this delicate yet intense fruit I’d love to try this with my stand-by Pinot ready Salmon dish, roasted with sundried tomatoes and chipotles. 88pts
