Paso Robles, California

Vintner Jerry Lohr is considered a pioneer of the Central Coast wine region. The South Ridge Syrah is grown in lime-laden and gravelly soil, giving the varietal an intense fruit flavor. Black tea and blueberry aromas are followed by smoky flavors of vanilla on the palate.

Catch of the day: Pair this Syrah with seared ahi tuna.
