While you might whimsically call the Maison Les Alexandrins Syrah a baby Cote Rotie as a marketing ploy, this wine is no baby.  It is a blend of 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier, fermented and aged in a mix of stainless steel to retain freshness, and wooden barrels to add earthy complexity and tannins.  In the glass you will find a pleasantly inky, deep red robe.  The bouquet offers up a mix of cherries, red currant, black caps, dusty white pepper, mineral and violets.  On the palate this wine shows it has stuffing, the Viognier gives it a richness and lifts the red berry flavors to new heights.  Supple, well rounded tannins and dry finish makes this a great fall wine.  Pair it up with your next beef bourguigen, standing rib roast, wild mushroom strudel or sharp cheeses.
