Wine: Napa Cellars Syrah; RSV

Napa Cellars Syrah

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and it is time we start thinking about that special dinner and evening. I’ll try to post some recipes for the dinner next week, but the wine is what is on my mind at the moment. Whenever I think of romance and love, I think of a great American Syrah!

Many people shy away from a syrah due to the fact that it is an intense, powerful wine- and they are correct in that being characteristic of a syrah. However, there are a lot of things in life that are powerful and intense that they profess not only to enjoy but seek out. Hence, when you think of syrah, think of sex in a bottle to pair with the right meal giving you a great night!

Napa Cellars was founded with the concept of making varietal proper wines year after year. Their Dyer Vineyards Reserve Syrah is just that! When pulling the cork you’re going to discover an explosion if jammy, dark fruit aromas filling the air with hints of pepper on the nose. Pouring the wine into the glass, the deep velvety violet color . Both the vision and aromas of the wine do nothing less than make your mouth water in anticipation for the gentle first passionate kiss with this exotic fruit!

As the wine caresses the fore of your tongue, the jammy explosion of blueberry,
blackberry, cola, and violets seem to swell building into a crescendo to the mid-pallet of the tongue where it seems your mouth is going to explode from the wonderful juice explosion you’re experiencing. Just as you don’t think you can handle anymore, you’ve worked the wine to the back of your tongue and you swallow and that warm intensity you just experienced reverses and and  the warm sensation intensifies as it feels your mouth is shrinking back to normal size and the wonders of the passionate flavors seep out of your cheeks and gums concentrating on the center of the tongue where a second bigger explosion takes place replacing the brilliant fruit with spices and the desire for more wine.

Don’t believe me? Get a bottle of this elixir and put a little passion in your Valentine’s Day!
