2014 CJ's Barrel Syrah
"CJ's Barrel" is named after CJ Kingston, our family patriarch and pioneer who came to Casablanca in the early 1900s looking for gold. An extremely limited special bottling, it is allocated exclusively to Old Corral club members or direct from the winery.
We admire Northern Rhone wines for being “big” but not heavy, and the 2014 CJ’s captures a little of that magic. There is something heady about the aromas. The tannins have just a little grip, and the acidity keeps things lively. The combination of spice, meat and fruit makes us want to drink it with simply grilled lamb chops or a nice jamón with crusty bread.
