The Admiration 2021 vintage of this Central California blend, composed of 50% Syrah and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, offers a captivating sensory journey. Its deep ruby red appearance hints at its youthful vibrancy, while the nose presents a lively bouquet of ripe blackberries, cherries, and plums intertwined with nuances of dark chocolate, vanilla, and hints of black pepper. On the palate, the wine unfolds into a symphony of flavors; the Cabernet Sauvignon's bold blackberry and cassis notes meld seamlessly with the plush texture and dark plum essence contributed by the Syrah. Fine-grained tannins provide a sturdy backbone, balanced by refreshing acidity, while layers of spice, including black pepper and clove, add complexity. The finish is gratifyingly long, leaving traces of dark fruit and subtle oak. When paired with hearty dishes like grilled steak, braised lamb, or aged cheeses, the wine elevates the dining experience, showcasing its versatility and depth.

For a memorable culinary adventure, pair this Cabernet Sauvignon-Syrah blend with dishes that complement its bold fruitiness and structured profile. Grilled ribeye steak with mushroom sauce offers a rich and savory harmony, as the earthy notes of the mushrooms echo the wine's herbaceous undertones. Braised lamb shanks provide a luxurious match, with their succulent texture enhancing the wine's dark fruit flavors. Smoked Gouda or aged Cheddar cheese presents a delightful contrast, accentuating the wine's subtle oak nuances, while grilled portobello mushrooms with balsamic glaze offer a savory complement, enriching the wine's savory notes. For a decadent finale, indulge in dark chocolate desserts whose richness is beautifully balanced by the wine's hints of dark chocolate and fruitiness, rounding off the meal on a perfect note of indulgence.
