2004 Miller Wine Works Syrah, Castle Rock Vineyard

2004 Miller Wine Works Syrah, Castle Rock Vineyard Wine Details
Price: $42.00 per bottle

Description: The 2004 Miller Wine Works Syrah, Castle Rock Vineyard, Napa Valley, is opulent, plush and textured. This most Californian effort of the three Syrahs in the vineyard-designate lineup, resonates with ripe blueberries and plums, yet delivers sufficient tannin and a touch of oak in graceful balance, all cloaked in a satiny, full-velvet mouthfeel. It should improve for many years to come, but only if you can stay away long enough.

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.
