Cold Creek Syrah Wine Details
Price: $27.99 per bottle

Description: “Big, extracted, with boysenberry jam character, this vineyard always produces concentrated wines and the Syrah from Cold Creek is no exception. This is our wild, brambly and dense Syrah.” -Bob Bertheau, Head Winemaker

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.
