Double-Down Syrah

Double-Down Syrah Wine Details
Price: $26.00 per bottle

Description: Incredibly ripe, rich, and bright fruit indicative of the perfection that was the 2003 vintage. Beautifully integrated with French Oak. Not yet submitted for independent review, this is clearly the best version to date of our incredibly popular Double-Down Syrah. Always considered a "good value" by the independent wine reviewers. A good solid 90 point wine at a very favorable price!

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.
