McPherson Syrah

McPherson Syrah Wine Details
Price: $22.00 per bottle

Description: Syrah is a classic grape of the French Rhone region and it adapts beautifully to the climate and soil of far West Texas. The deep, dark purple color of my Syrah is matched by the deep rich aromas and flavors of blackberry, blueberry, plum and pepper. Aged 12 months in French Oak enhances the wines "velvet glove" softness and intriguing wisp of smoke.

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.
