Margerum Syrah Santa Ynez Valley Alondra de Los Prados Vineyard 2005
2005 Margerum Syrah Alondra De Los Prados Vineyard120 six packs producedDeep ruby red fruit - currant, cranberry, raspberry are condensed into a focused core of pulsating fruit, vibrant and alive, spiked with a dash nose-tickling spice with a hint of floral. Elegantly lifted and weighted with substance. Tom Krig keeps his small, one acre vineyard on Meadowlark Lane manicured with the precision of a master bonsai gardener and the fruit is beautiful. It is always the first Syrah to get picked every year and comes in accompanied by a bit of Viognier with which it is co-planted - and then co-fermented for the extra aromatic note. The wine is aged 20 months in all new 3 year air dried Allier forest oak barrels produced by a high quality cooperage in the village of St. Romain, France.
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.
