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.
Her hommage to Northern RhÃÂ´ne Syrah, the 2012 Proprietary Red Le Barrettage (a play on words), is a 250-case cuvÃÂ©e 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.
