This is possibly the best Lewis Vineyard Syrah we’ve ever produced! The 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. This phenomenal wine is inky, dark purple in the glass and delivers heady aromas and flavors of blackberry, cherry cola, boysenberry, sage, and spice. A rich, mouthcoating wine with a delicious finish. Extremely limited production. Enjoy!
