Montevina Syrah

Montevina Syrah Wine Details
Price: $12.00 per bottle

Description: Montevina 2004 Syrah’s eggplant-colored ensemble tastefully adorns her opulent body. Whiffs of sandlewoodand violet perfume waft enticingly out of the glass, exciting your sensibilities. Luscious red fruit flavors ooze across a verdant valley of spice. Campfire smoke, freshly roasted nuts, and fine tannin lace together a lingering, satisfying finish. Enjoy with a duck trio of roast breast, confit, and paté, wild mushrooms, or a loaf of crusty bread with a pungent cheese.

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.
