C.G. Di Arie Syrah

C.G. Di Arie Syrah Wine Details
Price: $30.00 per bottle

Description: This wine exemplifies the style of wine that I like to create It has a deep color and a classic Syrah aroma of green & black peppercorn combined with a woodsy and pine character. This wine has four flavor components: the fruit component is a strong jammie cassis; the oak component is of vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg; the savory component is of grilled meat, especially in the first sip; and the finish leads to black pepper and back to cassis.

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.
