Fausse Piste' translates to 'wrong road,' a reference to winemaker Jesse Skiles' change of course from his former vocation as a chef at a winery. Syrah from Washington State is its own beast. While it shares a few traits with its California cousins and Rhône ancestors, it distinguishes itself as an intense, muscular combination of dark fruit and rich earth. This Syrah is a perfect example. Black currant, blackberry, and cassis are balanced by smooth tannins, assertive acidity, and an underlying salinity. While hearty cold weather fare like venison may come first to mind, this heavy-hitter would be equally well-matched with a porterhouse on any old day of the year.
