|Antiqvs Gary's Vineyard Syrah|
Here is a prime example of a handcrafted wine—and a good one, to boot. First of all, special care was taken with terroir selection (Santa Lucia Highlands) as well as good grapes and fine winemaking techniques. Only about 200 cases were produced, so the price is (almost) irrelevant—especially if you find yourself liking the wine. What's to like? A dark beverage with fruity character, ranging from ripe raspberries to blackberries laced with some spice. Most pleasant in the mouth with a medium to full body and a lingering finish, you could pair it with short ribs.
