Pennyfarthing Syrah 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Good Syrah is easily loved. Its rich color practically guarantees a beautiful structure, for the richer the pigments, the finer the tannins. If wine is food, then Syrah is the chocolate fudge of red wines. Always rich, soft and satisfying, it carries delectable flavors of vanilla and exotic spices within a structure just firm enough to frame an ample portion of berry fruit. hard to go wrong on food pairings: Syrah teams up with hearty foods like steaks, roasts, and old cheddars, but at these prices we can even afford to pair with everyday fare: burgers, or how about an old fashioned pot roast tonight? Prepare to smack your lips.

We Smiths offer you skillfully crafted wines which explore traditions outside the mainstream. We've chosen to present ourselves a little differently than most winery websites, because our tiny production interests us in close personal relationships with a limited and knowledgeable clientele who are thirsty for a real connection. Our wine is our personal artisanal expression, not a commodity we mass market. Tasting is believing. WineSmith wines always harken to European style goals: plush, velvety structure, aromatic integration, mineral depth. When your guests taste WineSmith, the first sip should carry them away, like pressing the DOWN button on the elevator. Many California wineries try to "knock your socks off" with wine styles which eschew grace in favor of impact. Not us. After the first taste, you'll probably remain fully clothed. But prepare yourself to be sorry when it's all gone. Read less
