2004 Syrah, Castle Rock Vineyard, Napa Valley

2004  Syrah, Castle Rock Vineyard, Napa Valley Wine Details
Price: $42.00 per bottle

Description: The 2003 Miller Wine Works Syrah, Castle Rock Vineyard, Napa Valley exhibits a fleshy, medium-body that is loaded with ripe red plum and generously spiced red berries. The sweet oak spice notes are seamlessly integrated, and it has a fine tannin structure that will have this wine age well; although, it is quite pleasant for immediate enjoyment today.

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.
