2013 Syrah

The wine is a beautiful magenta that literally coats the glass. On the nose it displays rich blackberry type fruits accented by a wonderful floral lift. In the background is the classic liquid smoke and black olive I associate with Syrah. The palate is sweet and oaky up front, transitioning into a medium bodied mid palate that has good breadth and fine prickly tannins. The finish has great presence and lingers nicely.

Appellation: Columbia Valley

Vineyard: 52% Doc Stewart, 45% Washington Good Earth & 3% Art Den Hoed
