Atelier Winery's 2003 Syrah @ Rhone Rangers March 19th

Sunday, March 6, 2005: It’s a beautiful day in wine country: sunny, clear skies, and 80 degrees. And it is an exciting day for us at Atelier Winery as we prepare to bottle and launch our 2003 Syrah at the Rhone Rangers tasting in San Francisco on March 19th.

We just returned from Napa where we have been cellaring our Syrah for the past 18 months. All this time in French oak has matured the wine and developed it to a stage that we find perfect for drinking. The plum fruit now has hints of spice and caramel courtesy of barrel aging and the texture of the wine is soft and supple. The full-bodied style makes the wine a great accompaniment to rich cheeses and roasted vegetable and meat dishes. The Syrah will be ready to drink in just two weeks and will continue to develop complexity in the bottle for another 2 to 4 years.

To ensure that the Syrah makes it to your cellar, join the Atelier Wine Club and be among the first to receive shipment of our new release. Members enjoy their guaranteed annual wine shipment of Atelier Zinfandel and Syrah at a 20% discount, which also applies to all future purchases. Choose your level of participation at 2, 6, or 12 bottles per shipment, and stay tuned for more information regarding “members only” tastings and social events.
