Description: This Texas Syrah is brilliant in color, and aromatic to the nose. This balanced wine exhibits dark fruit flavors like currants, plums and blackberry. It has a hint of wet earth and leather on the delicate finish. This is a dry wine. This Syrah was aged on new American Oak barrels to improve its aging potential and add toasted oak and soft tannins to its overall flavor profile.

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.
