Classic Colorado weather today, isn’t it? Makes you want to stay home and curl up with a book and a blanket and a really nice glass of Red, doesn’t it? We can’t do much to help with the book or the blanket but we for darn sure have got the wine! It’s the 2016 Chateau Diana “707” Syrah from the Alexander Valley and boy is this stuff good! Lifted scents of violets and blueberry blossoms sit gently atop darker notes of cocoa, cold espresso, and game to create a nose that is so deeply complex and engaging that it can only come from Syrah. Then you have a taste, and what a taste it is! The palate is rich and velvety with the kind of silky generosity that makes it go down so easily. Blueberry pie filling mingles with cocktail cherry juice and macerated strawberries on the entry while impressive hints of peppery spice, damp cedar, and rose linger eternally in between sips giving this Red the sort of layered complexity that is rarely witnessed at such a reasonable price. Sip it alone when you want a big, rich cocktail Red or pair it with hearty courses like braised lamb shanks, grilled black and bleu burgers, or a nice rare bison ribeye. What’s more is that this Syrah is still very much on the evolutionary upswing. Drink this beauty over the next 5 years and watch the fruit slowly recede allowing all of that wonderful non-fruit Syrah complexity to shine through!
Food Pairing:While you could certainly have the 2016 Chateau Diana Syrah all by itself, we think you’ll find that it is a truly worthy companion for a variety of flavorful dishes. I think it would really sing to you if you paired it with something rubbed with a bit of Chinese 5 Spice powder. Bone-in skin-on chicken thighs come to mind as a possibility, and so does rack of lamb. But really, if you have a dish with big flavor and a nice umami component to it then I think the Syrah will be right at home alongside it.
