Price: $40.00 per bottle

Description: The 2003 Miller Wine Works Syrah, Brookside Vineyard, Napa Valley is fleshy and creamy, with boysenberry, black raspberry, dark plum, and mineral notes. It is on the fuller side of medium-bodied now, but structured to take on weight, and will age extremely well.

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.
