Barking Frog Winery’s 2007 Syrah $25
Fresh press rated Recommended 9-19-2011 issue.
The grapes for this wine come from the Yakima Valley and open with classic aromas of bacon fat, cherries and cigar box, followed by flavors of blackberries, cloves, white pepper, herbal tea and a bit of toast. It’s a big wine, so pair it with a rich Italian dish or a grilled steak.
