Food Pairings for Wind Gap Syrah Castelli Knigh
The Castelli-Knight Ranch consistently yields wines that scream w/ pepper brown spice fresh blackberries and iron. True to any singular site there are always vintage specific characteristics that differentiate one wine from the next. The 2007 is no exception the telltale peppermill in a blackberry bush aromas lead the charge for the decadent layers of ripe fruit 2007s hallmark. This is truly one of the most exciting vineyards to work with and the one that creates some of the most compelling wines year in and out. While the wrapper has changed the goods are the same don't let the price fool you. Tasting Note: Deepest red-black with purple highlights are your first hint that this is a serious wine...the nose explodes on cue with black and pink peppercorns exotic secondary aromas and ripe brambly blackberries. A persistent presence of tar and cola remind you that this is Syrah while the iron tar and pepper scream that Castelli-Knight Ranch is back! The ripe tannins clamp down and slowly dissolve leaving your mouth watering for another sip.... and another sip.
