Saviah Cellars - Distinctive Wines from the Walla Walla Valley

One of my favorite Syrah's ever! Super silky, yet full bodied and very satisfying. This wine delivers rich aromas of black cherry, dark berries, savory notes along with an element of minerality. The flavors are delicious showing balanced acidity with cherry, plum, mineral, sassafras and savory roasted meat. The wine finishes with richness and intensity.
