About This Wine:
There’s nothing shy about the 2018 Syrah from Bramble Ridge, which was crafted using grapes from California’s under-the-radar Lodi growing area. A little-known “secret” is that Lodi has been supplying grapes to its Napa and Sonoma County neighbors for generations.
But this wine clearly and proudly proclaims “Lodi” on the label, and deliciously demonstrates how flavorful the wines from this area can be. Syrah, the star of France’s Rhone region, is known for its dark fruit and spicy characteristics, and this California rendition is similar in style.
The wine’s inky, deep purple/blue color seems to scream, “Watch out!” In the mouth, the cuvee does not disappoint as an array of dark fruit flavors dance with suggestions of cracked peppercorn and baking spice. Make it part of your next “big meal,” with a main dish such as roasted lamb shank.
