Syrah - Edna Valley Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: uit for this single vineyard Syrah came from two small hillside blocks in Edna Ranch, a promising new vineyard in Edna Valley. Planted to the Estrella Syrah clone on 5C rootstock, the vines run north-south for improved sun exposure. The wine is rich and expressive with aromas of ripe plum, blackberry, licorice, black pepper and spice.

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.
