About This Wine:
Syrah is a variety with a well-established reputation that was developed in the Rhone Valley of France. It produces wines that are full of flavor, robust and stylish. And because Syrah grapes are high in tannins and low in acidity, the wines they make are ideal for aging.
Because it’s a low-yielding variety, Syrah wines are highly prized. That’s true in France, and it’s also true in California, where a group of vintners collectively known as the Rhone Rangers have helped put Syrah at the forefront of winemaking in the Golden State’s Central Coast growing region.
Braxton Hall has access to a number of top Central Coast vineyards, where the soils limit the yields of the Syrah vines and intensify the flavors in the grapes. The 2017 vintage reveals layer after layer of enticing flavors, and would be a wonderful pairing partner for not-too-spicy street tacos.
