Food Pairings for Scott Harvey Wines Mountain Selection Syrah
This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Gold Series selection. The Scott Harvey 2005 Mountain Selection Syrah is produced exclusively from the mountainous vineyards of Amador County that make up a good representation of the county’s ability to produce world class Syrah. Awarded a Double Gold Medal by the Fiddletown Wine Competition, this wine was produced in a drinkable fruit forward, rich style with firmly structured tannins that developed a well-rounded wine for delicious drink ability. The 2005 Syrah was honored with a deserving 88 Points – “Highly Recommended” from the Beverage Tasting Institute, as well as 3 Silver Medals from various international wine competitions. A varietal mouth filling creamy texture with big red berry cherry fruit comes alive in the first taste, supported by aromas of blackberry, cedar, blueberry and sweet light oak. Concentrated flavors of fresh, bright, spicy fruit and firm tannins carry through the long finish of Scott Harvey’s Syrah. Try pairing the wine with leg of lamb, spicy stews, and hearty steaks. Aged 21 months in oak. 100% Syrah. Enjoy now until 2015.
External Reviews for Scott Harvey Wines Mountain Selection Syrah
Beautiful, medium French oak, fresh front palate with bright blue berries on the back palate. soft mouth feel, well structured wine with a long full finish. 100% grown in mountainous Syrah Vineyards of Amador County. These vineyards make up a good representation of Amador County’s ability to produce world class Syrah. They vary from steep rocky volcanic slops to rolling Sierra mountain terrain. This mountain terroir produces low yields of first growth quality fruit. Harvest was early in 2004 with a smaller than average crop. grapes came in with small bunches and berry size allowing for a more extractive vintage.
This wine exhibits a mouth filling creamy texture and big cherry fruit. Aromas of blackberry, cedar, blueberry and sweet light oak introduce fresh, bright, spicy flavors, laced with firm tannins that carry through the long finish.
