Dominio de Valdepusa Marques de Grinon Syrah, 2005

With the assistance of Chef Kris at Tapiloes 53, we selected this wonderful Syrah to pair with courses 3-5 of our meal.  This is a big Syrah with opulent fruit, vanilla and a bit of spice.  I don’t have much experience with Spanish wines, but if you told me this was a Napa Syrah, I’d have no problem believing it.  This wine not only paired well with our dinner, but was also a pleasure to drink.  It had a silky finish and got better as it opened up.  I’ll keep my eyes out for it here (and you should too).
