This wine greets you with aromas of blueberry preserves, black cherry, and savory meat.
Complex notes such as tea tree, coffee, thyme and bay leaf balance out the ripe fruit.
The addition of a small amount of Viognier lightens the aromatics and adds a touch of
violets. The sleek tannins in the mouth give this wine great body and weight. The
suppleness continues on into the finish. This wine is deep, dark, and brooding allowing
for its many layers to open up as you enjoy.
The fruit for this Syrah is grown at our acclaimed Spice Cabinet Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills. This vineyard sits on a southeast slope above the Columbia River. The
orientation of the block allows for morning sun exposure of the fruit, while avoiding the
intense afternoon rays.
