- Winemaker John Duval
- Appellation Columbia Valley
- Varietal Syrah
Purple / black in color, this superb Syrah offers grilled meat, bacon fat, game and wild blueberry aromas and flavors. On the palate the wine is spicy, layered, and plush with soft tannins and enough acidity to hold things together.
Scented, complex aromas and flavors of dried cranberry, plum, game, chocolate, wild spices and herbs and sexy coconutty oak. A very sophisticated syrah; some of Washington's home-grown winemakers might learn something from this baby.
Smooth and velvety, this is a graceful, beautifully balanced Syrah that shows off its blueberry and plum fruit against shades of white pepper and cedar. The finish keeps welling up with haunting flavors.
