I’ve had 2 bottles of this kicking around since I visited their Jackson tasting room last year and had the occasion to enjoy one last week with a nice steak.
Chateau Aeronautique Syrah (2012) Michigan – $25
Color: medium to dark garnet red; a little brickish on the edges.
Aroma: spicy, with notes of tar, black plum, and pepper.
Taste: chewy up front with spice, then a big burst of plum on the mid-palate. Finishes medium-long with stewed fruit, jam, and tannin.
Quite respectable, and a nice wine for steak.
