Gallery Collection Napa Valley Syrah Wine Details
Price: $35.00 per bottle

Description: The 2004 Gallery Collection Syrah offers concentrated black cherry and blackberry aromas, with hints of red licorice and peppery spice. Dense and powerful in the mouth, where velvety tannins surround a crisp structure. A long finish is marked by black currant and boysenberry tones perfectly balanced by toffee and nutmeg spice. Pair the dense flavors of this wine with rich Prime Rib roast or game.

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.
