Lane Tanner Syrah, French Camp Vineyards

Lane Tanner Syrah, French Camp Vineyards Wine Details
Price: $20.00 per bottle

Description: This Syrah is a bit more extracted than 2002, but very accessible; all the fun and fruit of a Syrah without excess tannins. The sweet juicy blackberry fruit is highlighted in the palate and the soft black pepper and smoke finish lingers to the next sip. It goes with almost any robust food dish and many light cream sauce dishes. Of course it turns most Asian dishes into a celebration. Speaking of celebration…try it with turkey or ham…yum-yum…Please enjoy it with friends!

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.
