Renideo Syrah Sicilia (2005)

Renideo SyrahThis Renideo Syrah is holding up well with our appetizer of hummus, tabouleh and pita! I don’t like to sound like a broken record, but this, too, is a fabulous big red. I guess when I walk into a wine shop and say, “We like big reds” we get big reds. The bouquet is intense blackberry, currant and raspberry. It is full bodied with silky-smooth tannins and a wisp of spice on the finish. This would complement a good hearty soup or a steak dinner.

Tom: This Renideo Syrah has a typical peppery taste of a syrah. Its strong berry fruit taste also has an unusual bitter quality. Its alcohol is also noticeable. The combination works; to me it has a different but appealing overall taste. It’s another one of the recent wines we’ve tried that are definitely for red-wine wine lovers, not for the occasional merlot sipper.

    I tried this one resently and was not overly impressed as far as “stand alone”, I had another glass the next evening with a chicken cacciatorre and it was wonderful. I may have to order a few more to have on hand.

    As I recall this wine, it makes perfect sense to me that it tasted better to you with food than alone. The decanting probably helped, too.
