Food Pairings for Benessere Syrah Shiraz St. Helena Estate
One of the greatest attributes of Syrah is color. Our 2004 Syrah is a vibrant opaque ruby-purple, with aromas of black fruits, smoke and sage. In addition to the blackberry fruit, there are hints of black tea, cured olives and roasted coffee beans. The flavors are full and rich, with blackberry compote, toasty oak, wild game and chocolate malt as the dominating components. This substantial wine will be an excellent guest at any dinner table with hearty fare such as barbecued ribs, roast duck and pecorino cheese. It will age well for the next decade. Syrah has certainly found a home in California's temperate climate. It is easy to grow in many areas and yields a wine with rich color and flavor. It produces a wine that is deeply colored and is often full-bodied. After hand-picking, the grapes were gently destemmed and crushed into a small, open topped fermentor. The "must" was hand-punched and macerated for 27 days. After pressing, the wine was settled for 48 hours, and racked "dirty" into a combination of new and once-used French oak barrels. After 20 months of aging and four rackings, the wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered on June 7, 2006. Sugar: 0.0
