Syrah Lucero, Kingston Family Vineyards 2012
Fll of herbal, spicy, savory flavors, notes of lavender, tapenade, black olives and black fruits. The 2012, like the 2011, is a bit more subtle and approachable than earlier vintages, fresh and lively, and most importantly, rinkable. While it gets better with air, it doesn’t demand decanting. As always, it works beautifully at table, paired with hearty unpretentious fare.
