FAT bastard Syrah is sourced from vineyards in the Minervois and Pézenas areas near the picturesque, fortified city of Carcassonne in Languedoc-Roussillon. These vineyards present optimal conditions for Syrah vines due to the stony soil and impeccable microclimate that come together to yield mature grapes with a high concentration of color and aromas.

Tasting Notes

Dark ruby in color with vibrant purple reflections. The nose displays a spicy, yet fresh profile containing tinges of olive, clove and sweet blueberry while the palate exhibits a robust body and invigorating flavors of paprika, tobacco, and peony.

Food Pairing

A perfect match with smoked Gouda, baby-back ribs, and any dishes with a spicy kick!
