Winemaker's Notes

This Reserve Syrah was crafted with Syrah, Grenache, and Viognier to accent the aromatics of wild strawberries, spice, blueberries and cocoa, with hints of subtly sweet orange peel. A slight white chalk, dusty character – hallmark of the Horse Heaven Hills terroir – is followed by mouth-filling flavors of earth, dark chocolate, and cocoa, leading to a seductive blueberry- strawberry finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Open-textured, silky and appealing for its cherry and plum flavors, shaded with coffee and bittersweet chocolate notes, which come up stronger on the finish. Drink now through 2012."
