Tasting Note: Chateau Aeronautique Syrah

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.
