Tony Aspler’s Wine Pick of the Week: Boekenhoutskloof Porcupine Ridge Syrah Viognier, 2010
By Tony Aspler
This Northern Rhône style-wine has a smoky blackberry nose with an herbal note; it’s full on the palate, dry and savoury with a bitter chocolate finish. Lively acidity and full-bodied. Food match: beef casserole, old cheddar.
$16.95, Vintages #79442
