Brochelle Paso Robles Syrah - RESERVE

Brochelle Paso Robles Syrah - RESERVE Wine Details

Description: Our Reserve Syrah comprises the crème de la crème from a few select barrels and the results are a profoundly concentrated 15-case bottling. This wine is the cousin to our Ridge Top Reserve in the fact that it is intentionally crafted to be decadently rich and over the top. This wine showcases a massive nose of black cherries, plums and dark berry flavors. All of the glorious fruit is blended masterfully with a sultry, lingering caramel finish. Drink now

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.
