2011 Syrah - Stone Tree Vineyard : Columbia Valley
This Syrah is sourced from Stone Tree Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope near Mattawa at the end of O Road, and the first time we've shown it on its own as a vineyard designated wine. This warm location and cool vintage produced a 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 wine.
