Howdy, wine drinker.
I’m Jacob from I Want You to Drink More Wine.
Today, I’ll be sharing an honest wine review and suggesting a pairing that complements this wine perfectly.
Today’s pairing is a nice simple pairing, but if you want a nice big bold red and you enjoy cheese to nosh on, this is going to be your pairing.
Let’s go ahead and check out our wine.
Beckmen Purisima Mountain Vineyard Syrah 2014
We’ve got a 2014.
This is a Beckmen Vineyards, and this is out of Ballard Canyon, California.
You see here, we’ve got a Syrah.
And this is going to be–where is it?
Where did you go?
Looking for the–I cannot find the–oh.
On the side, 15% alcohol.
This is going to be a big boy.
Big, bold, flavorful, in your face, or in your mouth, bold.
But we have a very interesting cheese that we’re going to pair with this one today.
We’ve got a Camembert.
Stinky, sometimes mushroomy, grassy, earthy.
It’s almost like a Brie.
People say Camembert Brie, but it’s not really a Brie, even though it–oh, I guess it is a Brie.
But it’s–to me, you know, it smells a little different.
Nice and soft.
Let’s see how it goes with this wine.
Simple pairing, but the flavors.
You know, if you don’t really like alcohol, the high percentage alcohol in your throat, you may not enjoy the wine as much, but I think it’s a phenomenal wine.
This cheese, all the earthy, grassy, flavorful, mushroomy.
And then the spices of the Syrah.
I always say Syrah, Syrah.
Not much to it.
The complexity comes from the pairing itself.
There’s not a lot going on here, but if you are going to try it, go ahead.
Try this Camembert cheese and our Beckmen Purisima Mountain Vineyard Syrah 2014, out of Ballard Canyon.
That’s California, US.
And as I can see here, Vivino’s got a 4.1 rating.
I would agree with this.
Average price $29.97.
And we got some buying options here.
B-21– oh, out of Florida.
Never heard of them.
Gotta check them out.
Try this pairing.
Let me know what you think.
And until our next video, take care.
