The Syrah Tous les Jours is a quintisential Santa Ynez Valley Syrah. It is simultaneously bold and balanced, rich and smooth, fruit forward and earthy. It is impossibly dark and full-bodied, without ever going over the top. It is heavily inspired by Northern Rhone Syrah (Hermitage) and Australian Shiraz (Borassa Valley). The aromas and flavors are dominated by black cherry, raspberry,
white pepper, forrest floor and toasty oak. It is absolutely unique and special expression of Syrah. Moreover, It is a style that one can enjoy every day.

With mouthwatering flavors that suggest dark plums and dried herbs, it belongs next to a platter of grilled lamb chops. Best Buy.
