The 2012 "Le Barrettage" is very dark blackberry in color with deep dark fully ripe aromas of black plums, pomegranate juice, smoked meat, mineral earth, savory spices, and a hint of bacon. It is concentrated, black and rich across the palate with smoky sweet mouth coating refined tannins, and a seamless long finish. This is a thing of beauty for Rhone style wine lovers. I love this wine! It's blend of several different Syrahs, Grenache, and a dash of Petite Sirah to complete this delicious proprietary "Rhone style" blend from La Sirena. Don't miss this one! It's so darn yummy. Food Pairing: Wild duck, venison, or any gamey dark meats; ribeye steak, rich dark stew, bolognese sauce, sauteed mushrooms, grilled summer vegetables, balsamic reduction, brisket, short ribs.

Wine AdvocateHer hommage to Northern Rhône Syrah, the 2012 Proprietary Red Le Barrettage (a play on words), is a 250-case cuvée of 90% Syrah and the rest Petite Sirah and Grenache. It is a beauty. Loads of dense cassis, blackberry, licorice, lavender and pepper are all present in this full-bodied, chewy, heady wine. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
