Kestrel "Falcon Series" Syrah Yakima Valley 2007
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Kestrel's wines seem to always come off as hard to beat values, no wine more so than this. The wine is soft, with plenty of fruit from red to blue to black. There's a hint of leather and black pepper but not too much. Anyone looking to break into Syrah would be hard pressed to find a better Intro wine.
