Dh Lescombes New Mexico Syrah 2009
Hervé Lescombes settled in Southern New Mexico after many years of successful winemaking in Burgundy, France. He carried on his family legacy by planting a small vineyard influenced by European viticulture. From this vineyard, only the highest quality, hand-selected grapes are destined to become D.H. Lescombes wines. Showcasing an old world approach to winemaking focused on balance and subtlety, D.H. Lescombes wines are committed to French oak maturation and are hand-crafted with traditional techniques to create wines of the finest character and distinction.
Food Pairings for Dh Lescombes New Mexico Syrah
We use two different methods of fermentation to produce this wine. Two-thirds go through a standard fermentation, with a maceration period of 7-10 days, the final third goes through a cold maceration process. This process helps to add to the heavy berry, when one wine is blended with the other. The end result is a wine full of complexity, its color is heavy garnet, with tinges of violet on the edges. The flavor and aromas carry tones of spice, wood, berries, and a mildly rich earthiness with subtle, well-integrated tannins.
