Blue Rock Syrah

Blue Rock Syrah Wine Details
Price: $36.00 per bottle

Description: Our third vintage of Syrah is our best ever! This wine has exceptional power, yet, it is balanced with fine tannins and a great sense of grace. It has wonderful Syrah character and is more Northern Rhone in style with smoked meat, pomegranate, and black currant aromas; The flavors are consistent with the nose with complex black cherry as well as gamy/earthy flavors. This Syrah has medium tannins that are silky and which hold the wine in perfect balance; fabulous length; very solid growth potential!

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.
