All the elements of a great Syrah - earthy, leathery, anise, black currents in the nose. Forward tannin and balanced acidity add to a richly textured body. The palate is dominated by black cherry jam, and roasted portabello mushroom. Pairs well with smoked or roasted meats and heartier food faire.
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.
