While I hate to play favorites, particularly in wine, Syrah may be my favorite red grape varietal of the new year. Nebbiolo still has its place in my heart, but it may have been momentarily dethroned, at least until this weather clears. Dark black fruit, earthy tannins and notes of peppercorn dominate the palate and finish on this wine! It’s exactly what I’m looking for when it comes to Syrah and this highly-praised winery refuses to source its grapes from anywhere but its own vineyards, even for their entry level offering. There are only three producers from California I look to for Syrah if I venture outside of the Rhone Valley and Tensley continues to deliver. You don’t have to believe me though, just ask Robert Parker!

What People Are Saying
I like wine but I don’t have the budget to drink great wines as often as I’d like. The selection at Amsterdam Wine Co. is so well chosen that I feel like I’m always drinking above my means. Great addition to the neighborhood.

I’ve lived on the UWS for 20+ years and long ago had pledged my allegiance to one of the old stalwart liquor stores in the neighborhood. But something made we want to give Amsterdam Wine Co a shot. I did…. and I’ve never looked back. Great selection, great prices and amazing service. It’s my new “go-to.”
- Jason C.
After spending most of my nights selling wine to locals and tourists alike, it’s a relief to be able to walk into a local wine store that can give back that same level of attention and passion. Amsterdam Wine Co. will always be my go to spot on the Upper West Side for a great conversation and that perfect bottle of wine.
