We crafted this Syrah-dominant blend around the magnificent fruit from three distinguished vineyards: Arianses near Desert Aire and StoneTree near Mattawa, both on the Wahluke Slope, and Ranch at the End of the Road on Red Mountain near Benton City. Distinct locations with climates all their own contribute to a complex flavor profile of dark fruits, spices, and savory edges. Viognier was co-fermented with the Syrah to add floral notes to the bouquet and soften the finish.
