J. Lohr South Ridge Syrah 2019
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
Varietal aromas of blueberry and black tea are accented by floral notes, bergamot, and lilac in the 2019 J. Lohr Estates South Ridge Syrah. The native spice and structure of this Northern Rhône cultivar is lengthened and lifted by the inclusion of Grenache, Viognier, and Mourvèdre. Pair with a slow-roasted pork shoulder and herbed potatoes. For simple, casual fare, try a classic BLT.
Smoke, blackberry sauce and white-pepper aromas show on the nose of this bottling. The palate is medium weight, with black currant, tar and purple-flower flavors.
