Last week Laura, the owner of Chez Nous wine bar, was nice enough to let me know that she was down to her last two bottles of Leaning Post 2013 Keczan Syrah, my favourite wine on her (current) list. It’s Leaning Post’s last Syrah for some time, apparently.
She put aside a bottle of it for me, and I swung by in Friday’s snow and cold. It’s just so good — all pepper and fruit and dusty delicacy. I’ll miss it. I enjoyed it with a board of meet and cheese, and ended the night with a glass of Malivoire Old Vines Foch, which might just be my new go-to big red on Laura’s list.
