Syrah Tierra Alta Vineyard

Syrah Tierra Alta Vineyard Wine Details
Price: $36.00 per bottle

Description: With elegance that only angels possess, gliding into the room amidst a potpourri of cherries, blueberries, and pomegranate, she captures your imagination with lavender perfume and obliterates your inhibitions with nuances of nutmeg, sage, and toffee. In a move of selfish spontaneity, you embrace desire and delve into a kiss loaded with all the flavors of passion –strawberries, pomegranate, cassis and cherries. A Sirens song of coffee and cola expose diabolic intentions saturating your soul with lust. An evening of black ties and red dresses becomes a night of stolen moments and necessary sin, compressing the wonders of eternity into one moment.

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.
