RoxyAnn Syrah Wine Details
Price: $30.00 per bottle

Description: “.....produced from the estate grown grapes at RoxyAnn the 2003 Syrah displays a deep and vibrant purple color with generous aromas of perfumed spice and loads of ripe blueberry and blackberry flavors. Dark and juicy, this wine is polished and smooth with mild tannins behind a chewy mouthful of concentrated blackberry, cherry and white pepper accented with lavender blossoms and a gentle touch of spicy oak on the long, lingering finish

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.
