Syrah Hudson Vineyard

Syrah Hudson Vineyard Wine Details
Price: $60.00 per bottle

Description: Massively rich/forceful nose of meats, oak, earth, spice and a hint of black cherry and chocolate. On the palate this wine just takes over. To call it dense is really not fair. Dry aged beef, smoking coals, blackberry, bacon fat and sweet oak show themselves on the palate along with masses of sweet/ripe tannins.The finish on this just does not quit and tapers off after a minute or so so a sweet dove tail of sweetness.

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.
