February Wine of the Month

I don’t know where you live, but this winter in DC has been cold. Very Very Cold! So when it comes to wine during these cold months I want something hearty, something big, something a little spicy, but I still want something smooth. Well I think I have found just that.

To be honest, I never really considered myself a Syrah fan. I always thought it wasn’t my thing. But when my friend Lauren, kept raving about Syrah, I figured I better give it another shot. So when we had girls night last week I grabbed a bottle to bring to her house, and after trying it I knew I had tasted a little slice of heaven. I never thought Syrah could be this good.

I mean this wine has it all. It is drop dead sexy, voluptuous, smooth, sensual, rich, layers of chocolate and brown sugar among a mellow earthiness and black fruit. It was one of those times where you found your self drinking a lot faster than you planned on because the wine was just that good. I literally had to force myself to stop.

You can drink this wine on it’s own, but it would be lovely with any sort of smoked brisket or BBQ beef ribs. I could drink this wine everyday and twice on Sunday. It is scrumptious.

I think you get the point….and if not…try a bottle yourself!
