Reserve Syrah Wine Details
Price: $38.00 per bottle

Description: Our 2002 Reserve Syrah was hand-selected from the rockiest and most difficult growing areas. It was then aged in 100% new French Oak barrels. Only the best barrels were selected for the Reserve bottling. The wine is an intense purple-black with aromas of blackberry, blueberry, pepper, and smoke.

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.
