2013 Syrah – Stone Tree Vineyard : Wahluke Slope
This Syrah is sourced from Stone Tree Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope near Mattawa at the end of O Road. This is the second time we’ve shown it as a vineyard-designated wine, but now 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.
