La Redonda Toro Libre

The first segment(Mostly not available on google search)
Occasions, tips, alternates, cocktails, food pairings, SJ's Rating, Feel.

SJ's Rating- Middle Shelf 
The first time I tried Mexican wine & did not get a good impression. Overpriced for the quality. Though this Syrah is drinkable, I did not like the feel of the wine and its taste. I would stick with cabernet sauvignon in the future. 

Occasion- Dinner with family
SJ's Pro tip- Great with food
Alternates- Encore 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon . Cheaper and much more enjoyable. 
Food Pairing- Italian food(Warm Salmon Carpaccio with pasta, Roman-style calamari, Grilled zucchini & eggplant, Roasted quail, Sicilian style salmon, dessert-chocolate piano)
