Here's a bottle of beautiful American Syrah, from Washington, that will be perfect with this seasons great game dishes. It comes from Chateau Ste Michelle that's been taking pride in producing old world style wines since 1967.
The Syrah graps are grown in the Colombia Valley outside Seattle. A cascade mountain range shield the vineyards from the marine climate of Seattle, allowing only 15-20 cm of rainfall every year. This leaves us with a good consentration in the grapes and quite low alcohol being an American wine.
It has great fruit and just enough tannin structure to handle the often lean game meat. It's a beautiful bottle and a great image on what American Syrah graps could be at their best.
NB! - I'm tasting the 2015 vintage, but the current vintage in Vinmonopolet is 2017.
