Domaine de la Terre Rouge Les Côtes de l'Ouest Syrah 2014
Save $5.00 (20%)
We find this wine is very forward and drinkable shortly after bottling, making it a great everyday Syrah, and perfect as a restaurant glass pour. This 2014 vintage has beautiful color with rich, silky, wild raspberry fruit flavors laced with pepper, sage, tar, and olive/herb tones. Aromas are raspberry, smoky, wild gamey, peppery, and cinnamon. The wine has a clean purity of Syrah fruit that is reminiscent of many St. Joseph's and other Northern Rhone's. It has forward fruit flavors and great acid balance. It is very smooth and savory in the mouth.

Wine SpectatorTrim and tightly wound, with layered boysenberry flavors accented by dusty herb and spice notes and finishing with a modest tannic bite. Best after 2019.
