When made right, Syrah is the pagan vision quest of red wines. If it were a film genre it would be an Italian Giallo. It's heady, full of smoke, flowers and incense. It's earthy and animalistic, full of musk, blood and iron. It's mysterious and exciting, ripe, bitter and black. It's a bit naughty. With "Blood + Flowers" I set out to exemplify Syrah at it's most Syrah, in all its wild bacchanalian glory. Enjoy by: drinking from a goblet with smoked meat in a wooded sweat lodge.
