Paso-Robles-Shell Creek Vineyard Petite Syrah

Paso-Robles-Shell Creek Vineyard Petite Syrah Wine Details
Price: $25.00 per bottle

Description: We have made more petite syrah from this vineyard over the last two decades than any other, and continue to marvel at the consistency and quality it displays. With a signature of blueberries in the nose, and hints of spices and mint beneath, the wine manages to be both powerful and refined.

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.
