Texas Syrah

Texas Syrah Wine Details

Description: The rich garnet body reflects the true nature of a Syrah, combining subtle ripe berry aromas with a slight earthiness. In the mouth, this wine begins effortlessly, marrying the flavors of fig and plum which culminate in a spicy sophistication.

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.
