Dry Comal Creek Shiraz/Syrah

Dry Comal Creek Shiraz/Syrah Wine Details
Price: $23.99 per bottle

Description: Different names - same wine! This is our initial release. The wine is very dark, almost opaque. There are intense aromas of blackberry, tobacco, smoke and earth. Dark and brooding flavors of boysenberry and black pepper lead to a rich, mouth filling finish. This wine had the potential to age, and while it is great now, one to three years of aging will reward the owner with greater complexity and richness.

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.
