Tonight’s opening – 2013 Markham Syrah. I believe this may be the first Syrah I’ve opened at home. I’ve tasted at tastings, never gave a real second thought to them, but this one is very nice. Light, but deep in berry and dark fruit notes, soft tannins, and good body. I don’t really know if that’s an oenophile-grade description. I just like thinking about how it tastes and effectively softens the hard finish to my workday!!
