Tasting Notes

This Walla Walla Valley Syrah showcases the outstanding 2017 vintage. The weather was perfect for Syrah, with cool nights throughout September resulting in fresh acidity and delicious aromas of olive brine, blackberries, with cured meats that evolve into plum, blackberry, and savory notes. Excellent balance, seductive flavors of beef broth, mountain berries and fresh cracked pepper, with a long silky finish. Enjoy!
