Annie Camarda Syrah

Annie Camarda Syrah Wine Details

Description: As we try to do with all of our wines we put our heart and soul into this wine. All the grapes come from the Ciel du Cheval vineyard on Red Mountain where Jim Holmes and Ryan Anderson continue to grow excellent fruit. The extra year in barrel we gave this wine, has contributed to making it a wine with a sense of completeness and, we hope, sophistication.

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.
