|Have you ever heard of the expression, “a wine tasted of a particular place”? That's what this wine did, and the place it expressed is the Northern Rhone. Helfenbien La Syrah is the real deal, with an Old World classic texture free from any flab. It's a medium to full-bodied wine that is taut, electric, and bright. Helfenbein's wine is full of flavor, with modest alcohol, deep in black fruit, black pepper and anise flavors, as well as soft tannins.
I believe the Helfenbein La Syrah is perfect for our customers. Here, we have a true Northern Rhone Syrah that can hold its own against the more prestigious appellations of the region, but without the high price tag. It's super with food, and can be drunk on its own as well. I've been buying this wine for my own enjoyment ever since I brought it into the store.
