Announcing Crystal Basin’s Wine of the Month Syrah!
Syrah was one of the two grape varieties that Crystal Basin was founded to showcase.
Grown at higher altitudes, Syrah gains a rugged, meaty fruitiness and loses the higher tannins that its often known for.
Our Syrah is a fruit-forward expression of sun and soil.
El Dorado fruit brings on a rich blackberry and peppery aspect that is intriguing like wearing shiny leather pants.
We hope you’ll enjoy some of our Syrah soon!
Visit us at any of our Crystal Basin Cellar locations during the month of December for a special tasting featuring our January Wine of the Month Cabernet Sauvignon.
No discussion about wines made from red grapes is complete without homage to Cabernet Sauvignon. The most-planted grape in the world, Cabernet Sauvignon has proponents of its rich and tannic flavor profile in most, if not all, of the grape growing regions of the world.
Hailing from the Bordeaux region of western France, the best versions of wines made from this grape can reach a graceful age and awe you with their cost. Best found on your dinner table or on the menu of your favorite restaurant, Cabernet Sauvignon compliments fine foods and a healthy diet.
With small berries and low vineyard yield, Cabernet Sauvignon creates multi-layered wines that can be enjoyed during winter months and warming dinners in cozy living rooms. Crystal Basin has used the same vineyard sources for our Cabernet Sauvignon for over 20 years. Enjoy with those you love!
Crystal Basin Cellars is highlighting our double gold medal award winning Sangiovese as our October Wine of the Month.
Sangiovese is Mother Nature’s statement about the flavor exchange that happens during the transition from Summer to Fall.
Just like the ripening cycles in October’s gardens, vineyards and pumpkin patches, Sangio somehow combines the acidity of the summer heat and transitions it to the mellowness of shorter days and narrower temperature swings of fall evenings.
Sangiovese speaks to the fall ripeness of your garden’s bounty and can create some of those memorable and sublime Indian Summer experiences that mark the change of seasons.
That’s why we are featuring it as our October Wine of the Month.
Watch Mike Owen & Rex and the Road discuss the the Crystal Basin Cellars Sangiovese below to learn more about our award winning wine!
This wine pairs well with roasted pork, gnocchi with sage butter, or even a spaghetti and meatballs meal. In other words, the perfect addition to your fall dinner table!
Enjoy a bottle of the Crystal Basin Cellars October Wine of the Month, Sangiovese, in your home by ordering a bottle to be delivered to your home or you can pick it up at one of our locations!
