Rose of Syrah

Rose of Syrah Wine Details

Description: Produced from the winemaker's personal syrah vineyard in Hagerman, Idaho. This Rose is 100% free-run Syrah juice. Flavors of raspberry and black cherry, with a fresh herbal note persisting through a dry, mineral-mouth feel. Especially appropriate when firing up the grill. This one is not your usual Rose!

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.
