Another presidential debate, another debate wine pairing, this time with a third party candidate. This was a three year vertical of SYZYGY’s Red Wine. In our snap polls, the 2004 edged out the 2005 with the 2006 a distant third.







SYZYGY Red Wine Columbia Valley 2004

An engaging nose loaded with anise and clove aromas alongside black cherry, dark fruit, and spice. The wine has a beautiful mouthfeel that opens up and lingers for a long, long finish. Cabernet, Syrah, Merlot, Malbec. 14.6% alcohol.



SYZYGY Red Wine Columbia Valley 2005

A more delicate nose than the 2004 with rich black cherry and light oak aromas. The wine has light anise on the nose and taste. The 2005 wine is smooth with a good finish but overall lacks the depth and grip of the 2005. Syrah, Cabernet, Merlot, Malbec. 15% alcohol.



SYZYGY Red Wine Columbia Valley 2006

A smoky nose with anise, bing cherries, and brambly fruit. The wine has a good body but it does not really come together with the nose and is a little thin on the mid-palate. Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet, Malbec. 14.8% alcohol.
