“The Reserve Syrah is slightly higher in alcohol than the Syrah and serves up more concentrated dark black fruit and is highlighted by the addition of deep bittersweet chocolate and cherry cola elements”

Food Pairings: Syrah pairs great with bold foods. You can pair Syrah with anything from a blue cheeseburger to barbecue, the trick is to bring out the subtle nuances in the wine, with grilled meats- pork, beef, lamb, venison (clove and anise spices will highlight the nuances in the wine)

Cheese Pairings: Syrah is a good pairing with blue cheeses like Roquefort or gorgonzola, with salty cheeses like pecorino, Grana Padano, or even halloumi. Gouda, asiago, gruyere, and aged cheddar also make for a good Syrah cheese pairing. Syrah can also pair with aged, stinky cheeses like Camembert and Brie.
