About This Wine:
During the first decade of the 21st century, Paso (as the locals call their home) dropped the “emerging” and became a bona bide star, especially as a producer of exceptional red wines.
Syrah is one of those reds. While the variety first made a name for itself in France’s Rhone region, it has found a welcoming home in Australia (where it’s known as Shiraz) and in California (where the vintners who have embraced it collectively are known as the “Rhone Rangers”). West Ridge crafts a Syrah that’s known for being true to the variety and absolutely delicious.
The 2018 vintage is medium garnet in color, with lots of fruit and spice impressions in the aroma and on the juicy palate. The finish is nice and long, with toasted wood notes showing through and adding to the complexity and enjoyment.
