echeverria and napa cellars syrah – from the wine virgin

The next wine of the evening is one I have tried previously. It’s called Echeverria Syrah (Chile), and it is one of my absolute favorite Syrahs, and wines period. I have really liked this wine in the past because I feel like the balance between pepper, spice, and sweet is almost perfect. It consists of the plum smell and taste, but with a hint of spice.

What was strange about this evening was that the Echeverria tasted almost too spicy when compared to the other wines, particularly the Napa Cellars Syrah.  This was a wine that was featured last week, and you can read last week’s blog post here. I think possibly the orzo salad could have brought out the spice more in the Echeverria. It is a Syrah from Chile, so it is known for it’s spice. I think spice can be enjoyed, but not if it’s overwhelming. And I honestly do think it was either just me, or the food. I’ve had this wine 2 previous times and loved it – and several people bought the wine after the event. So I definitely would recommend this syrah, as well as the Napa Cellars.
