Wine Basics — Grape Varietals 101: Syrah (aka: Shiraz)
Enjoyed with cheese. Nice wine for a casual eveining.
Attack of the big, bold Zin! This is a wine that needs food; meaty, savoury, juicy meat would be great like a salted and grilled BBQ steak or if you happen to be at a Brazilian steakhouse and see this on the menu - order it! I wouldn't say it's my favorite Zin, it's pretty prickly at first and I could immediatly sense a next-day headache. I put it in the fridge, as I do with most reds that I'm not sure about, and had it again 2 days later. Much softer, more tolerable when chilled. Happened to pair it with a dish that had a side of pickles (gourmet over here) and the salty pickles really brought out the fruit in the wine and reminded me of my favorite Pinot Noir, believe it or not. Would I buy this wine again? Only on sale, and probably to give to someone else.
