2009 BlackSmith Syrah
Blacksmith is Forgeron Cellars line of outstanding and affordable wines. To get this combination of quality and value, we source our grapes from different varieties and vineyards and then, with skillful winemaking, craft them into the highest possible quality vintages.
Our 2009 Syrah is a blend of well known vineyard sites located in unique settings throughout Washington State. Utilizing diverse locations allows us to focus on the terroir of each vineyard and bring the classic characteristics and personality of the fruit into focus. Enjoy intense aromas of boysenberries, black pepper, hyacinth and cured meat followed by mouthwatering flavors of juicy pomegranate and boysenberries. Combine this with just the right amount of spice, wonderful acidity and a long, lush finish makes this Syrah the perfect accompaniment to your favorite fall meal.
Enjoy with classic Boeuf Bourguignon, hearty soup, Meat Lover's Pizza or Indian curry stew.
