DeBro Syrah

DeBro Syrah Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: The Debro’s vineyard lies in the northwest corner of the Paso Robles appellation. The superlative grapes it produces consistently yield inky, full-bodied wines brimming with personality. The 2002 Syrah is no exception. It offers fragrant Asian spice, smoke, and gamey aromas with rich, smooth, medium- to full-bodied flavors. Tannins are soft, but a good core of acidity assures the wine’s age-worthiness. This tasty Syrah pairs well with anything off the grill and will be a pleasure to drink over the next 3-4 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.
