El Dorado Gold

Chalky match-stick briar pumping diesel exhaust, scorched strawberry and stoned hibiscus into rusty tins of frozen berry and the stillness of the frozen North nowhere near springtime. The honey-oak retch of sweet beauty and angsty asphalt make more popular Syrah appellations its bitch as it crashes El Dorado through ashen-faced parties intent on classic rendition.

In the mouth, the plausibility of bitter fruit, thin and late-night tobacco-ridden against thin vibrant fruit dancing on pin-points of low alcohol become shocking reality from this sun-baked clime and the silva-spoon garnish of cellar solidify the deal.

People who make great Pinot *usually* make great Syrahs. We’ve all had the pinots from Withers–have you had the Rhones???
