My Favorite Things: Falcone Syrah 2013



I love this Falcone Syrah. I picked it up at the Black Cat Bistro on a trip to Cambria, CA, and I can't wait to run into another bottle. Vinous gave Falcone Syrah 2013 90 points and had this to say:

"Bright purple. Ripe dark berry and licorice scents are complicated by notes of cracked pepper and allspice. Supple and gently sweet, displaying good lift and energy to its juicy blackberry and cherry flavors. Silky tannins give shape to the finish, which lingers with very good spicy persistence."

Pair it with pork belly (I did), or with mushrooms, truffles or roasted root vegetables if you prefer. It's a beautiful bottle of wine. Be good to yourself and enjoy a bottle with a friend.
