A fruit-forward and robust Syrah made using estate-grown fruit from Washington's Wahluke Slope. A perfect wine for pairing with most meats, pastas and cheeses.

Statesman Journal review, March 10, 2011
"Silky and smooth, this Syrah interweaves flavors of plum, rose petal, white pepper and maple syrup. Dense, inky tannins make for a lengthy finish."

Chuck Hill's Wines of the Week - March 2011
"As Scrooge McDuck used to say, “Well pluck my tail feathers, and call me baldy!” Here is a Syrah that won a silver medal at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, offers lip-smacking, juicy berry aromas and flavors, and costs less than a rack of ribs from Costco! Sooooo…buy the wine, buy the ribs, get a loaf of artisan bread and enjoy."
