Description: 2003 Montevina Terra d’Oro Syrah boasts a concentration of power, grace, and complexity that truly dazzles.

Black plum flavors are heavily spiced with anise, cracked white pepper, and rich dark chocolateand have a tart candied apple 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.
