Rabbit Ridge Paso Robles Syrah

Rabbit Ridge Paso Robles Syrah Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: The Paso Robles Syrah is produced from grapes grown on our Cristalla vineyard on the west side of Paso Robles, California. For optimum grape quality, we planted the vines 3 feet by 6 feet, and maintain low picking yields of under 2 tons per acre. This is a highly extracted, dark, fruity wine with a bold, round finish. Enjoy our Syrah with notes of blackcurrant, raspberries, and spice.

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.
