Trinchero Family Syrah Wine Details
Price: $12.00 per bottle

Description: The long growing season produced fruit with a deeply saturated purple-black hue. On the nose, the wine exhibits aromas of blueberry, blackberry, and raspberry, with vanilla and white pepper notes. The palate showcases a wealth of rich fruit with a balanced tannin structure, which integrates nicely into the richness of the fruit.

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.
