"Dusty Trails" Syrah

"Dusty Trails" Syrah Wine Details
Price: $28.00 per bottle

Description: Aromas: The 2002 Dusty Trails opens with powerful rustic aromas imparted from its high quality fruit and months of barrel aging. Dark red fruit aromas of plum and dark cherry fill the nose and are supported by vanilla and cedar nuances imparted from its American and French oak aging. Flavors: Full-bodied with just the right amount of fruit, the 2002 Dusty Trails offers flavors of raspberry, cherry and spice. This wine has a pleasingly long mid-palette with firm tannins and a smooth, succulent finish. Made to enjoy after a few years of aging in the bottle, but released at the perfect time to consume.

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.
