Page-Nord Syrah

Page-Nord Syrah Wine Details
Price: $35.00 per bottle

Description: The color of this ripe Syrah seems concentrated, shinning redish blue off the edge. Immediately the aromas hint at the extreme ripeness of the wine. It is a swirling mélange of aromas including pomegranate, leather, fresh berries, pepper and vanilla. The structure and backbone of the wine is gripping on the palate. And once it gets a hold of you, watch out. Red currant, black fig, ripe plum, spice and hints of tea on the edge make this a fascinating, even cerebral wine. We believe the wine's structure and intensity will allow it to age gracefully for five to ten years.

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.
