IL Bosco Syrah 2005. Day 1 - Way too akward/young. Sour Cherry Juice and bitter tannins Let decant for a day. Day 2 - Totally changed. Dark Fruit, mid weight, spices, a very slight creamyness, bright tannins, high acid (for a red, think Barolo). Overall, imagine sryah made like a Barolo, then you'll understand why you need to leave it in the cellar for another 3-5 years before you think of drinking it.

I decided to pair a PN with my Saturday meal, which featured crispy pork belly confit. Needed acid, needed power, so I pulled an Oregon:



Portish on the nose, with some light barnyard. Strong tannic backbone, well matched acid, and strong fruit balanced. Went well.
