Rosé of Syrah Wine Details
Price: $14.00 per bottle

Description: This dry rosé is the perfect summer wine—bright and crisp and meant to drink chilled on a balmy afternoon. The spicy cassis and rhubarb flavors couple with a nice acidity to enhance a wide range of summer meals. It’s perfect with vine ripened tomatoes, steamed mussels, grilled oysters or barbecued shrimp.

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.
