2006 Syrah - Ciel du Cheval Vineyard : Red Mountain
This is our first Syrah from Ciel du Cheval Vineyard, one of the premier vineyards in Washington State. Located in the AVA of Red Mountain it is blessed with warm days and cool nights that ensure mature ripe flavors will dominate. We topped off the final blend with a splash of Grenache from Stone Tree Vineyard to add a touch of strawberry to the bouquet…and just to keep us guessing.
3% Grenache (Stone Tree Vineyard)
Bottled on 7/13/08; only 50 cases produced. This wine was aged for 21 months in 50% new Saury American oak and 50% once used Alain Fouquet oak.
