Laetitia Syrah Estate Wine Details
Price: $25.00 per bottle

Description: Dark black plum in color, the ecletic nose of this wine is composed of a medley of oak, anise, and bay with underlying aromas of berry and spice. The multi-layered quality of this Syrah results in a pleasing consistency from start to finish. The firm body is meaty with fresh, ripe cherries. The wine is dense with firm tannins on the finish, layered with lingering notes of pepper and spice.

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.
