Ahler Vineyard Syrah

Ahler Vineyard Syrah Wine Details
Price: $39.00 per bottle

Description: The 2003 vintage of Ahler Vineyard Syrah is a well-structured wine with black licorice, ripe strawberries and rich tannins. This Walla Walla Valley Syrah shows a lot of power through the mid-palate and lingers to a mouthwatering finish. This wine is great now but will continue to improve with additional cellaring.

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.
