Syrah Wine Details
Price: $38.00 per bottle

Description: This wine reads like…”It was a dark and stormy night…”, you don’t mind as you are wrapped up in your cozy robe and cuddled up with a spicy leather bound novel by a roaring fire, sipping cocoa and indulging in a blackberry tart. Wrap all of that into this bottle and you have a thrilling, full bodied Syrah with a luscious, lingering finish. Enjoy this wine with provolone cheese, heirloom tomato soup or beef tenderloin, (p.s. It might be better with a spicy novel or a roaring fire…you decide). This is a limited edition wine, only 51 cases produced from Wetherell Vineyards in the Umpqua Valley.

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.
