Food Pairings for Carlisle Syrah Sonoma County
<p>One of Sonoma County’s best vintages to date, this unfiltered wine is a deep purple-magenta color and has an intense array of aromas of blackberry, smoked game, black olives, and violets, characteristic of Syrah wines. Its flavors are rich and full, including mainly blackberry and violet. A clear, crisp finish on account of medium-bodied, smooth tannins.</p>
