Red Triangle Syrah

Red Triangle Syrah Wine Details
Price: $30.00 per bottle

Description: The Red Triangle vineyard Syrah exhibits intense aromas of freshly cracked pepper, ripe plump plum with a dusting of earth tones for intrigue-a real treat for those who appreciate a big, full-bodied red. The palate is concentrated yet still soft, round, generous and rich ¼ all the hallmarks of a Northern Rhone and of a great Syrah!

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.
