Maintained through an organic growing process, our Syrah vineyards are entering their prime, reflected in the wine's brilliant color and intense aromas. Bonterra Syrah blends a touch of Rhone varietals like Grenache, Mouvedre and Viognier for a powerful floral note. Concentrated berry flavors come to the fore with notes of vanilla and toasty oak spice from aging in French oak.
You can see youth well served in the wine's brilliant crimson color and intense, heady aromas of black cherry and wild mountain blackberries before giving way to bitter-sweet, vanilla chocolate. The tannins are velvety smooth and supple. The oak is wonderfully integrated, with complementary flavors of cedar oak spice.
The 90+ Syrah's and Shiraz from wine.com tend to be outstanding, maybe just our taste buds. Love the Wine.com program that gives us free shipping for $49 per year, outstanding!! We were buying our wines at Grocery Outlet and rolling the dice to find a good wine, actually saving money here because of the ratings. We are currently testing 17 different wines that are 90+ and have found 3 outstanding ones so far out of about 9 wines. This is one of them
