Syrah Wine Details
Price: $28.00 per bottle

Description: Our inaugural release of Syrah boasts an opaque, ruby-purple color and enticing, multi-layered scents of dark black fruits and pepper spice with the savory, roasted meat tones characteristic of this classic Rhone Valley variety. On the palate, the wine delivers lush black fruit and spice flavors of great intensity and depth, supported by firm tannins. Cellaring the wine for 5-6 years will further soften the tannins and yield a rich, round, silky Syrah of great distinction.

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.
