This Columbia Valley, Washington 2008 Syrah sourced and selected by the tasting team at The Good Works Wine Club, is impressively powerful on the nose. This suggested some decanting to give it some breathing room. Once opening up this wine presents wonderful spice and deep plum flavors. With the addition of a hint of clove and mild earth, it paired very well with a platter of nutty crackers and blue cheese. The mild tannins and slightly acidic nature of this wine makes it a great bottle to have with a meal.
The team at The Good Works Wine Club sources and hand selects wine worthy of their private label, and offers them to their wine club members. When you order your wine, you get to select from a long list of nationally known, and well respected charities, where a donation from your purchase will be sent. Its win win for everyone.
If you are a non-profit looking for more fundraising opportunities, get yourself connected with this wine club.
I am very much looking forward to sipping more offerings from The Good Works Wine Club.
