2020 2020 Sequel
- Winemaker John Duval
- Appellation Columbia Valley
- Varietal Syrah
After 16 years as winemaker of Australia's iconic Penfolds Grange, John Duval came to the Columbia Valley in 2003 as the "Sequel" to his life's work with Syrah.
An expressive Syrah, deeply colored, with dark, spicy aromas and complex, multi-layered flavors. Bright cherry, wild blueberry and savory black olive tapenade are enhanced by the wine’s vibrant, mouth-filling viscosity and texture. Beautifully rich with refined tannins stretching across a long, concentrated finish.
Inviting aromas of black and blue berries with violets, dark chocolate and spices. Medium to full-bodied. Toned and focused with pure fruit and fine-grained, silky tannins.
Three distinct Columbia Valley growing regions, each representing roughly a third of the blend, are used to create a complex, multi-layered wine. Yakima Valley’s Boushey Vineyard gives Sequel its liveliness and vibrancy. Syrah from a collection of Red Mountain vineyards provides ripeness and structure. Bacchus Vineyard Syrah adds intense color and aromatics.
