Syrah: Earthy and Fruity

Thomas J. Story
Pair with lamb, sausages, and grilled meats of all kinds

Swirl and taste: Dark fruit (blackberries, blueberries, and cherries), black olives, and herbs against a backdrop of earthy leather, tobacco, and meaty bacon, laced with black pepper.

Pair with:

• Lamb
• Sausages
• Grilled meats of all kinds
• Roast pork
• Barbecue
• Stews
• Game―venison, squab
• Black olives
• Dishes with lots of black pepper
• Dishes with pungent herbs

Find your style: Syrah grown in the cooler parts of the West can be very dark and earthy. In warmer regions, the ripe fruit pops.
