2007 Rose of Syrah
Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Info: The Plata Wine Company (PWC) 2007 Rose of Syrah is 100% Estate grown Syrah from the Geneseo district of Paso Robles. The Syrah in the vineyard is planted to the Chateau de Beaucastel clone.
Wine: The color is vivid and pure. The wine has cla ssic pink to darker red hues, flecked by a tinge of orange.
Nose: Nose is full yet restrained with perfume of wild strawberries, rose petal and orange blossom.
Taste: The flavor is a continuum of the nose, but with a dash of white pepper. All framed with a natural acidity that leaves the palate refreshed.
Pairing: The wine is a joy to drink on its own. I suggest that you serve this wine chilled, as you would any other Rose. This wine pairs well with fresh grilled fish and vegetables. I also find that the wine pairs well with spicy dishes such as Jamaican Jerk Chicken or Tacos de Carnitas with homemade salsa. Cheers!
