Martin Fierro Syrah

I had the pleasure of sampling this  excellent Syrah from Argentina.  (2009)

While taste always holds a strong point in choosing a great wine, this one is worth the smell alone.  One swirl and you can instantly smell the rich aromas of dark chocolate and raspberries with a hint of cherries.  It is intense and intoxicating.  The smell alone will wake up your taste buds.  The smell isn’t the only thing to brag about.  The taste is just as delicious. A sensual mix of chocolate and berries is the first initial taste.  Over time the satisfaction of a plum finish can be found.  This wine is so great you don’t need to pair it with any food to bring out its true flavors.  

I would pair it  with  light Poulet Rouge Chicken Breasts or Pork Tenderloin Medallions.  Too much flavor in any dish could over power the flavors of the wine.  My final words to you are to try this bottle of syrah and take time to whisk away on this indulgent desire when the mood fits you.
