Syrah Wine Details
Price: $60.00 per bottle

Description: How magical is the world of Syrah! This wine takes you right into an oriental market with a plethora of exotic aromas. Coriander, violet, rose blossom, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, leather and fine tobacco blend together. This is a powerful wine, generous but also agile and elegant, thanks to its finely matured and delicate tannins. The nose is a blend of red and black fruits, spice and violet aromas. The multiple layers of spice and fruit will dazzle and linger on your palate for a long time. A rack of lamb or a favorite cheese would accompany this wine beautifully

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.
