About This Wine:
This became abundantly clear a few years ago during the annual San Francisco Grand Tasting event of the Rhone Rangers. Syrah is the undisputed grape king of France’s Rhone region, and it proved to be the star of the Rhone Rangers’ event as well. Growers in many parts of the state are providing winemakers with the “raw materials” needed to make stunning Rhone-style wines.
Better still, regional styles are developing within California, ranging from lean and minerally to lush and robust. Yet regardless of the style, Syrah ranks among the most food-friendly of all red varieties.
Take the 2016 Silver Pony Syrah as an example. We can think of few red meat dishes we would not enjoy with this exceptional wine, crafted from grapes grown in California’s Paso Robles wine region. For a special treat, pair it with your favorite lamb dish.
