2000 Syrah

2000 Syrah Wine Details
Price: $38.00 per bottle

Description: Our 2000 displays an intense purple-red color with luscious aromas of blackberry, fig and blueberry. Berry flavors dance on the palate followed by a slight hint of chocolate. A great wine with red meats or hearty Mediterranean dishes, the wine has a superb, satisfying finish.

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.
