Food Pairings for Joseph Swan Vineyards Syrah Russian River Valley Great Oaks Ranch
Aromas of ripe plum, bacon fat, leather and sage. In the mouth quite rich without being ponderous. Nice purity, good acidity, moderate tannins. Hard to resist now but will reward a few years of age. A note on why we release Great Oak before the Trenton Estate: while a lot of conventional wisdom would suggest releasing more elegant wines first, I have found that, generally speaking, our more elegant wines take more time to show what they got! Both of these syrahs will definitely continue to age well; - however, the Great Oak is generally showier and more generous in its youth.
