2018 Black Bart Syrah
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Black Bart Syrah opens with stunning dark plum, blackberry and rose scents followed by undercurrents of forest floor and notes of cardamom, cinnamon and clove. Elegantly structured, with a full-bodied lush palate, this wine reveals itself with dark plum, succulent blackberry and cocoa flavors, culminating in a long velvety finish tinged with black pepper. Pair with roast duck with blackberry compote or wild boar ragu pappardelle. (If boar isn’t available, braised beef and pork ragu will do nicely.) Drink now through 2035.
