Reserve Syrah Paso Robles Wine Details
Price: $19.00 per bottle

Description: After resting, the cap is quickly and gently flooded with the juice as it returns using a pump-over tool. The cap percolates up through the juice, encouraging color and flavor extraction without harshness. After fermentation, the wine aged in small, French oak barrels for 14 months.

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.
