Hug Cellars, Central Coast, Syrah

Hug Cellars, Central Coast, Syrah Wine Details
Price: $27.00 per bottle

Description: A blend of some of our favorite Syrah vineyards on the Central Coast. This wine is a younger cousin to our single vineyard Syrah’s. For those of you who enjoy the European style of wines, this one is for you. This wine exhibits intense blueberry and blackberry, white pepper and lavender. It is a great match with food, with its high acid and lower alcohol. The 2004 Central Coast Syrah is a perfect accompaniment with roasted meats like beef and lamb, but would also go great with hamburgers and pizza. Enjoy now or over the next 12 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.
