Winemaker Notes

Dark, robust and spicy this full bodied Syrah shows rich flavors of boysenberry fruit de pate, peppercorn, and licorice through an earthyfinish.

The growing region in Washington State is ideally suited to maximize the full expression of Syrah. Spicy, rich and complex, with soft tannins and bright acidity, this Columbia Valley Syrah is the perfect food pairing wine.

Blend: 82% Syrah, 16% Grenache, 2% Mourvèdre

A terrific value in Washington State Syrah, the 2015 Syrah Columbia Valley (82% Syrah, 16% Grenache, and 2% Mourvèdre brought up in neutral barrels) offers loads of ripe black fruits, peppery herbs, and earthy goodness in a plump, forward, yet concentrated style. It has top-notch purity, well-integrated acidity, and a great finish, all making for an outstanding Syrah that will keep for 6-8 years.

91 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2015 Columbia Valley Syrah (which incorporates 16% Grenache and 2% Mourvèdre) offers up aromas of crunchy black currant fruit and pencil lead. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, rich and chewy, with bright fruit flavors and balancing acids and a long, tangy finish. While the torrid 2015 vintage seems to have burnt off some of Syrah's more obvious varietal markers, it's a well-made, delicious wine for a competitive price.

91 James Suckling

This takes off as a riper style with plenty of bold plums and blackberries, cassis and blueberries on the palate. Sturdy, bold tannins to close. Drink or hold.
