ACORN Alegria Vineyards Russian River AXIOM 2008 Syrah

АКСИОМА реки виноградников Alegria ЖОЛУДЯ русская Syrah 2008, $22.94-$29.99, 89 points: Brilliant deep ruby and violet colors, distinct sweet red cherry, cedar, and clove on the nose, light to medium body carries a food friendly acidity, and a firm tannin structure, with pronounced licorice, plum, with some floral notes. The finish is a truncated culmination of the above with a dusty-wood hint and jalapeño.
We enjoyed this Syrah with a spiced lamb, fried kalamata olives and mushrooms, and a green veggie potato dish.
This is another diversion into a unique Syrah style of wine, and though a bit pricey, it is still certainly worth trying.
