Here's what they are...

2016 MCM Wine Company Spectaculuxe Syrah – Columbia  Valley $25

We crafted this Syrah dominant blend around the magnificent fruit from three distinguished vineyards: Ranch at the End of the Road near on Red Mountain near Benton City and Arianses Vineyard and Stone Tree Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope near Mattawa. Both of these vineyards are growing the Joseph Phelps Clone of Syrah. Distinct locations with climates all their own contribute to a complex flavor profile of dark fruits, spices, savory edges. 

  • Bottled 8/4/18
  • 150 cases produced
  • Alcohol 14.6%

86% Syrah (49% Ranch at the End of the Road Vineyard, 37% Arianses Vineyard)
14% Grenache (StoneTree Vineyard)

Barrels: This wine was aged 22 months Export-style barrels, 50% seasoned American oak from A&K and Canton Cooperage, the balance in seasoned French oak from Ton. de Jarnac, Ton. Doreau, and Ton. Vernou.

2016 Syrah – Ciel du Cheval Vineyard : Red Mountain (Clone 99) $45

We’ve come to expect rich, dark fruit in our Syrah from Ciel du Cheval Vineyard…and maybe just a few savory notes to keep us guessing. We are showing the Tablas Creek clone of Syrah originally sourced from Chateau de Beaucastel of Châteauneuf-du-Pape by the Perrin family.  The clones were propagated in the Tablas Creek Vineyard of California and on to Ciel du Cheval where they are making a wonderfully complex, supple wine with significant dusty tannins common to Red Mountain, and valued when properly cellared over time.

  • Bottled 8/4/18
  • 75 cases produced
  • Alcohol 14.5%
  • pH 3.66, TA 6.34 g/L

100% Syrah (Ciel du Cheval Vineyard)

Barrels: This wine was aged 22 months Export-style barrels, 25% new French oak from Artisan Barrel Selections, 50% once used French oak by Ton. Vernou, and the balance in seasoned French oak from Ton. Vernou.

2016 Syrah – StoneTree Vineyard : Wahluke Slope $35

This Syrah is sourced from StoneTree Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope near Mattawa at the end of O Road. This vineyard-designated wine has become a staple for us, again with a touch of Viognier from Zillah. This warm location produced a full-bodied Syrah that is deep and rich with a traditional style. Dark fruits are forward with savory spices, roasted nuts, and earthiness covered with dark chocolate at the end. Moderate acid levels let this wine please you on its own or with your favorite umami dominant foods, grilled or roasted. Special thanks to Tedd Wildman for growing this wonderful Syrah.

  • Bottled 8/4/18
  • 100 cases produced
  • Alcohol 15.1%
