Maison Les Alexandrins Syrah - 2016

Vin de France

When Syrah is blended with Viognier, you obtain a wine with more aromatic elegance and finesse. On the granite terroir of the Northern Rhône Valley, this blend gives freshness and body to the wine.
     

Avis

Opaque ruby. Ripe, smoke-accented cherry and blackberry scents and flavors, along with hints of olive and cracked pepper in the background. Juicy and supple in texture, showing good heft and a hint of bitter chocolate that carries through the nicely persistent finish, which is firmed by dusty, slow-building tannins.

A blend of 92% Syrah and 8% Viognier, the 2016 Syrah offers a terrific bouquet of sweet black raspberry and currant styled fruits to go with plenty of spice, pepper, and floral nuances. It’s medium-bodied, fresh, vibrant and juicy, with a deliciously quaffable style.
