Syrah “Teldeschi Vineyard”, Dry Creek

Syrah “Teldeschi Vineyard”, Dry Creek Wine Details
Price: $55.00 per bottle

Description: Aged in French oak for 15 months. Deep dark and brooding with flavors of berries, cocoa earth and spice follows right into the finish. I drank a 2003 the other night and it blew me away. Incredible bouquet, filled with lush fruit flavors and a hint of earth. Syrah drinks well 3 to 5 years but will also age longer

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.
