Rosé of Syrah Columbia Valley

Rosé of Syrah (Columbia Valley) Wine Details
Price: $10.00 per bottle

Description: almon-colored hues portend a great summer-time sipper. A subtle complex of strawberry, juicy-fruit, and fennel blend into a round, smooth mouthfeel just bursting with bright red fruit flavors. Snappy acidity make this wine a great foil for a wide range of mid-year favorites including grilled ahi, roasted franks, or a fresh pasta salad.

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.
