The Steele Stymie Syrah 2012 is a rich, robust red wine that displays excellent California flavors. The nose brims with aromas of berry, cherry, smoky bacon, and accents of nutmeg and cinnamon. The palate is full-bodied and hearty, with mellow fruit flavor and moderate tannins. The finish is persistent, with essences of leather near the back of the palate. This red wine is a worthy dinner companion. It pairs well with outdoorsy meals such as grilled steak, and it is also excellent with rustic kitchen comforts like cassoulet or beef stew.
