I’ve always wanted to call a wine da bomb and I finally found a legitimate excuse with a Boom Boom! Syrah from K Vintners in Washington State.
A few weeks back, we were chillaxing over a flight at one of our favorite wine haunts when their in-house wine guru pulled out this bad boy (er, girl?). By bad, I mean it caught my attention in a good way.
The wine is not-so-subtle yet completely subtle at the same time. How can that be? Let me explain because this smooth wine is actually very uncomplicated.
Expect subtle hits of blackberries with an (extremely ) not-so-subtle flinty and earthy finish.
The flintiness is what makes this wine da bomb for my palate.
Never before has a wine’s name seemed so fitting as it does with this Boom Boom! Syrah.
If you want a bottle that’s a break from your usual, yet fun… for $15 this wine won’t blast a hole in your wallet.
Unfortunately my memory went Boom Boom!, because I can’t, for the life of me, remember the vintage. Was it 2006 or 2007? Je ne sais pas. I just know it was dynamite, because I still remember the blast.
