The Peak of Syrah

Today’s Astrale e Terra 2010 Estate Syrah Napa Valley Atlas Peak is a very special treat and a worldwide exclusive! That’s right, the only place to get today’s fantastic, elegant, delicious, food friendly mountain Syrah is right here - right now.

This wine was made by Scott Harvey who is one of the winemakers that we’ve known the longest. Scott has made wine in the Napa Valley for decades and around the world for years before that. Scott’s wines are always superb. His natural, non-manipulation philosophy of making wine shines through in today’s delicious Atlas Peak Estate Syrah from our friends at Astrale e Terra.

Today’s wine is really quite elegant. Bright red fruits dance on the nose and on the palate, while supple tannins give the wine some pleasing plushness.

Be sure to stock up on this delectable treat. This is a great summertime BBQ wine, but we recommend that you also keep some on hand for the fall holidays.
