Redhead Vineyard PETITE SYRAH

Redhead Vineyard PETITE SYRAH Wine Details
Price: $28.00 per bottle

Description: Our Petite Syrah is a perfect example of our goal for this variety-sensual, velvety, and deeply flavorful. This wine possesses a dense, twilight-purple color, a bouquet suffused with blackberries, exotic spices, and black pepper notes, and a lavishly rich palate. Longer than usual for petite syrah, with ripe tannins that melt in your mouth.

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.
