Syrah

Syrah Wine Details
Price: $23.00 per bottle

Description: ...is our inaugural wine made of 100% estate fruit from hillside vines alongside the arroyo in beautiful Paso Robles. This is the site of our new winery and tasting room, where we hope to meet you personally in 2006. Alas, all good things take time. Until then, please enjoy the blueberry fruitiness and smooth finish of this rising-star Paso Robles varietal.

Varietal Definition
Syrah:
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.
