The 2016 Bodegas Borsao Zarihs ranks as one of the top Syrah values in the world. This big, rich, and modern-styled red snagged the #28 spot on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of 2020, and we were lucky to get a 10 case allocation.
For wine lovers who like their reds huge and concentrated, you are going to love the 2016 Domaine De Bila-Haut Occultum Lapidem. From a great vintage and crafted by the famed Chapoutier team of the Rhone Valley, this blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Carignan is deep, dark, and super concentrated.
