2013 :Nota Bene Syrah – Columbia Valley
We crafted this Syrah blend around the magnificent fruit from Arianses Vineyard and Stone Tree Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope just east of Mattawa, owned and tended by Bruce Zunser and Tedd Wildman respectively. The dark purple color hints at the deep, rich fruit to follow. Mourvèdre provides depth from Heart of the Hill Vineyard on Red Mountain and Grenache from Stone Tree. These diverse locations add character to the blend, but it’s Syrah with dark fruit, spices, and savory edges that linger on the palate. Bottled 7/25/15; 106 cases produced; Alcohol: 15.05%; pH 3.74, TA 6.3 g/L
75% Syrah (43% Arianses Vineyard, 29% Stone Tree Vineyard, 3% Ciel du Cheval Vineyard)
17% Mourvèdre (Heart of the Hill Vineyard)
8% Grenache (Stone Tree Vineyard)
Barrels: This wine was aged for 22 months in Export style barrels of 75% new American oak from A&K and Canton Cooperage, and the balance seasoned French oak from Tonnellerie Vernou, Ton. Orion, and Saury. The Grenache was raised in stainless and blended at bottling.
2014 Syrah – Columbia Valley
We crafted this Syrah blend around the magnificent fruit from four distinguished vineyards: Arianses Vineyard and Stone Tree Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope near Mattawa, and Ranch at the End of the Road and Ciel du Cheval on Red Mountain near Benton City. Distinct locations with climates all their own and three different clones contribute to a complex flavor profile of dark fruits, spices, savory edges, and a hint of floral notes from a splash of Viognier. Bottled 7/23/16; 150 cases produced; Alcohol: 14.53%; pH 3.74, TA 6.49 g/L
98% Syrah (33% Arianses Vineyard, 33% Ranch at the End of the Road Vineyard, 26% Stone Tree Vineyard, 6% Ciel du Cheval Vineyard)
2% Viognier (Marcela Vineyard)
Barrels: This wine was aged 22 months in Export-style barrels of 33% once used American oak from A&K and French oak from Ton. Vernou, and the balance seasoned French oak from Tonnellerie Doreau and seasoned American oak from Canton.
