Tasting Notes

Lewis Vineyard sits at an elevation of 1200 feet in the Yakima Valley near Prosser, Washington. The first Syrah vines for this vineyard were planted in 1996 and produced this rich, powerful wine with an inky, dark purple color. It opens with classic aromas and flavors of blackberry, dark cherry, savory herb, tobacco and spice and is perfectly balanced with fresh acidity and fine-grained tannins along with an extended finish that leaves you inspired to savor every drop. Extremely limited production. Enjoy!

Drink 2020-2028.
