Syrah is Vancouver WOW

by: Lane Giguiere

The Vancouver Sun chose 2009 Matchbook Syrah as a Wine Pick of the Week for October 6:

“Long story short, John Giguiere once lit a wheat field on fire hence the Matchbook name. The syrah is aged in an assorted mix of oak from France, Hungary and America for 26 months but only 22 per cent is new. There is nine per cent Sonoma cabernet sauvignon in the mix to add some structure to the rich blustery syrah fruit with its mocha, blueberry, and spiced fruit flavours. Soft and ready to drink with stuffed turkey.”
