Jean-Louis Chave Crozes Hermitage Silene 2016
Ripe fruit balanced out by backbone and structure, this Syrah shows plum, black pepper, pencil lead, and warming spices. Food Pairing: Perfect with heartier comfort foods such as cassoulet or braised beef short ribs.
A bright and open-knit style, with a floral edge out front of the lively red and black cherry fruit. Reveals a flash of anise on the finish. Drink now through 2019.
