Have you ever been moved to tears by a sublime performance at the symphony? When each musician works with such discipline, mastery, and impeccable technique that the combination of instruments achieve something seemingly impossible - the perfect piece of art?
Elegance, strength, and complexity in their purest forms, without frivolous additions or distractions to make up for any flaws - the very same approach that Chad Melville brings to winemaking.
This transcendent Syrah is like listening to a flawless rendition of Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet. It has beauty, power, and a myriad of layers to discover - even in moments of a diminuendo. With an alluring floral perfume that wafts delicately out of your glass, this wine reveals layers of ripe berries, black pepper and a touch of blood-red meat, with a finish that lingers like the final note on the score. It’s beautiful, it’s captivating, and it’s inspiring how perfection can lead to something so downright enjoyable.
Pairs beautifully with the following spring meals:
~ Brothy meatballs with peas, fennel, and tiny pasta
~ Sumac rubbed lamb with minty artichokes
~ Pork Marbella
~ Pasta with braised pork, red wine, and pancetta
~ Charcuterie board
