Myriad Syrah

Myriad Syrah Wine Details
Price: $38.00 per bottle

Description: Two words sum up this wine; rich and aromatic. It is an alluring mix of tobacco, chrystalized loganberry, black cherry and figs. Hints of vanilla bean infused with gram cracker, exotic spices & red tea greet the nose. On the palate, all of these components are combined with a vibrancy and freshness that must be tasted to believe. A burst of red fruit coats the mouth and is followed by a finish that is almost haunting in its length. While a year in the bottle will further integrate this wine, drink this one up in its youth, so you can enjoy its full glory.

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.
