Hudson T Syrah

Hudson T Syrah Wine Details
Price: $45.00 per bottle

Description: With the very best Syrah, the wine starts out its life in cellar very fat, full, and somewhat awkward. But unlike the Bordeaux varieties, it goes on a spa routine in cellar, becoming more elegant, balanced, and fine. The aromatic high tones of lavender and orchid, the white pepper spice, and the long finish develop from what began as an ungainly child. Our 2000 Hudson T has followed that program, and is a worthy successor to the fine 1999. We are sure you will find it one of the preeminent Syrah offerings from American soil.

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.
