Castoro 2010 Syrah EAST meets WEST

This 2010 Syrah takes the best aspects of the Paso Robles appellation to create a distinctive, memorable wine that truly represents this Central Coast region. Winemaker Tom Myers calls it ‘East meets West’ because he’s taken Castoro’s best Syrah fruit from Paso Robles’ Eastside and blended it with the best Syrah fruit from the Westside. The warmer Eastside brings the rich fruit and berry notes, while the Westside offers the rich color and smooth, yet structured tannins. The wine was barrel aged for 10 months, which allowed the flavors to blend seamlessly into a well-rounded, complex wine. Aromas berry fruits, violets and oak lead into a lush mouthfeel of bright fruit and lingering oak flavors. [+]
