prisoners, this is our highest end,
100% Syrah. Intensely concentrated,
complex and rich, it exhibits
notes of dark fruits, smoky earth,
game, and spice with subtle minty
notes. A fresh and very focused
mid-palate has a perfumy twist of
lavender and violets. The finish is
long, tight and balanced building
with every minute of oxygen in
the glass. A true Washington
terroir driven Syrah with substantial
aging potential. Unfined & Unfiltered!
Hail Washington Syrah!
"The 2006 Syrah Barrel Select (100% Syrah) is a selection of the best barrels in the cellar with the wine aged for 20 months in new French oak prior to bottling without fining or filtration. The nose reveals toasty oak, earth notes, smoke, lavender, bacon, and blueberry. Plush, bordering on voluptuous on the palate, it has superior depth of flavor, loads of spicy dark fruit, excellent balance, and 5-7 years of aging potential. It should be at its best from 2015 to 2026."
