Charles R Vineyards Syrah at Grazie!

Well, Last Thursday night we celebrated my son’s 11th birthday.  We asked him where he wanted to eat and he said Grazie in Brentwood.  We have been to Grazie many times before, but they have recently moved.  A great location centered in the new shopping center, Streets of Brentwood.   Julia called ahead and asked if they had a corkage fee.  At only 10 bucks, we decided to bring along a Livermore valley wine with us!  We chose to bring a 2007 Charles R vineyards Syrah.  It was a great choice let me tell ya.  We opened it up at the table and immediately I noticed the great nose.  Couldn’t wait to taste it.  Tangy plum, cinnamon, full bodied and smooth.  This was a GREAT Livermore Valley wine to enjoy dining out.  My older son and I shared the New York steak and grilled Salmon.  Two great entries from their newly revamped menu.  I have to say, the Syrah went well with both because it wasn’t too heavy.  Don’t worry, it wasn’t heavy but it was still very full bodied.  A great night, great birthday occasion, great food, and a perfect Livermore wine.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone.
