Garys' Vineyard Syrah

Garys' Vineyard Syrah Wine Details

Description: The Garys' Vineyard Syrah is sourced from a small section of Syrah grapes at the Garys' Vineyard. The wine is an outstanding example of the potential of cool-climate Syrah. Always deep and very purple in color, the wines are full of wonderful flavors and nuances of white pepper, leather and floral notes.

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.
