Terre Rouge Ascent 2003 Syrah

Dark inky ruby in color with aromas of like smoked spices among a forest of dark fruits. Once on the palate this syrah comes to life with undertones of cocoa, cracked pepper, and the flavors of dark fruits swelling across the tongue. The finish lightly lingers with hints of black currant and light flinty minerals.

This wine to be a dream for those who subscribe to the belief that food and wine are intended to be together as star crossed lovers fulfilling their destiny upon one’s tongue. This wine will pair wonderfully with a roasted duck and a cranberry-herb glaze and a side of sweet potatoes prepared with red pepper and nutmeg; bringing many of the subtle nuances of this wine to life.

This is a really big and bold syrah, lightly fined and unfiltered with the ability to hold well for many years to come.
