    Region: Columbia Valley, Washington

    Varietal: Syrah/Shiraz

    Item no. 90863

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Blend: 91% Syrah, 5% Grenache, 4% Viognier from the Stonetree and Elephant Mountain vineyards.

    The personality of the local terroir is skilfully captured - inspiring a handsome, earthy wine that is packed with power and concentration.

    Violet, leather and blueberry aromas float in the glass, wrapping the palate with black licorice, minerals, fig and dark chocolate. Bold texture eases into a lovely send-off of exotic spices.

    "...smells like a bowl of cocoa and blackberries cloaked with the scent of violets and tar. It's juicy and delicious with explosive black cherry and black raspberry fruit..."
    -Wines & Spirits

    "Crisp and juicy, this is almost preternaturally focused to show off its blueberry, plum and blackberry fruit, shaded by hints of mineral and cream as the finish lingers effortlessly against light, crisp tannins."
    -Wine Spectator

    "Heady aromas of raspberry, plum and mocha. Ripe cherry flavors with a peppery, acidic edge. Lengthy finish with youthful, rough-hewn tannins."

    This wine is a wonderful surprise. It drank easily, finished well. Purchase if you are into big, dark berry flavors.

    This isn't a knock- your -socks -off blockbuster of a wine, but still it's well worth the $20. The pure fruit is driven by fresh acidity and ripe tannins. It fills your mouth in an understated but appealing way compared to some overly sweet or overly oaked syrah/shirazes. I enjoyed it by itself as well as with food.

    With wine prices skyrocketing, this is a good everyday wine for under $20. Doesn't "knock it out of the park", but is easy to drink, no sharp edges, and with dark cherry and a little black pepper. Great for BBQs.
