DH Lescombes Syrah

Email Reminder:
We use two different methods of fermentation to produce this wine.
Two-thirds go through a standard fermentation, with a maceration period
of 7-10 days, the final third goes through a cold maceration process.
This dual-fermentation process imparts delicious, heavy berry flavors.
This wine has a fantastic nose with layers of aromas such as dark fruit,
black pepper, velvety cocoa, almond butter, black cherry and red flowers.
A somewhat straight forward, juicy flavor profile of pronounced
tannins, slightly tangy cranberry, oak and a punch of acid will likely
grow more complex the longer the bottle ages. This young wine shows
excellent aging potential and would make a great wine to lay down in
your cellar.
This wonderful red wine is perfect with veal, lamb, or pork dishes.
