Food Pairings for Mutt Lynch Winery Syrah Dry Creek Valley Canis Major Unti Vineyard
Seductive aromas of wild strawberry jam. Definitely ripe red fruits for this vintage; always ‘wild’ in the sense of the hint of herbs and spice that complex the wine’s core fruit expression. A full entry, mouth-filling with sweet viscosity and ripe tannins. A broad, full-bodied finish with chewy tannins. The wine is still quite young in its evolution.
