2008 Reserve Red - 89 Pts (Wine Enthusiast)

25.00

The 2008 Volatus Reserve Red wine is a huge blend of Syrah and Petite Sirah.  For this vintage we shifted from our normal Syrah/Malbec blend but the result is awesome!

The 2008 is viscous and rich, so dark it is almost black with a gorgeous garnet rim.  The nose is intense with dark fruit, earth, spice, and elegant oak notes. Taking a sip, the wine shows excellent body from the medium plus acid and gentle tannins as the black fruit flavors dominate with earth, black truffle, anise, wood and chocolate elements contributing to the experience.

The 2008 will pair well with rich meats such as lamb or a well-marbled beef or bison steak. Turn up the pairing perfection by adding earthy mushrooms or a hint of blue cheese to your steak.

89 Points - Wine Enthusiast

"This long-aged blend of 67% Syrah and 33% Petite Sirah is plump on the oaky nose with condensed rose petal, chocolate cake and violet aromas. The palate starts with ripe black cherries but then settles into an asphalt-laden midpalate, finishing with chocolate-chip cookies and a graphite tension."
