Plata Wine Co.

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!
