Winemaker’s Notes: Aromas of cigar, leather, and smoked meat fill the nose with hints of toasty oak, forest floor and baking spice. Well-structured tannins support big fruit flavors of blackberry jam, black spiced cherries, ground black pepper and just a hint of rhubarb
I had the pleasure of tasting the Luca Laborde Double Select as part of a socially distanced Syrah flight with 2 good friends yesterday, a doctor and a chef – huge props to each for their incredible talents. Thanks Lizzie and Sammy for the great night!
Earthy, wet cigar leaf, and smoky on the nose, this Syrah displayed medium-plus intensity notes of ripe blackberries, black cherry jam, and spice with fine tannins and thoughtfully interwoven threads of black tea, cocoa nibs, and cola, plus a long finish accented by smoky campfire. Really good on its own – even better with dried meats, Gouda cheese, and sharp cheddar. Drink now
