Texas Syrah

Texas Syrah Wine Details

Description: Our 2003 Texas Syrah is a medium-bodied wine with nuances American Oak and black pepper on the nose. Flavor flourishes on the palate through the essence of figs and raisins. A walnut finish completes this wine that merits special attention from the most finicky of wine lovers.

Varietal Definition
Syrah is the eight hundred pound gorilla of Rhone grapes! In the vineyard and the winery, Syrah is typically an easy grape to work with - healthy, early ripening, resistant to mildew and rot; suitable for winemaking in a variety of styles. The wines from Syrah are tannic without being harsh. The wines will have a taste and smell of dark blue fruit like blackberries and blackcurrant, with a strong spicy side where one can find freshly ground pepper and other spices. Syrah is famous for its part in the French blends, such as Côtes du Rhone and Châteauneuf du Pape.
