Black fruit, black earth and undergrowth, luxurious texture.
Morrison Lane: Oldest syrah plantings in the Walla Walla Valley, southeastern facing slopes, slightly cooler site in the foothills of the Blue Mountains. Soil composition consists of Touchet silt loam and riverwash, sandy loam with coarse sand and gravel. Planted in 1994.
"The 2007 Syrah Morrison Lane exhibits an alluring perfume of meat, bacon, game, incense, lavender, and blueberry. Easy-going and succulent, it is the most elegant of the Syrah offerings. It can be enjoyed now and over the next 8-10 years."
The Wine Advocate
"Dark red. Deeply pitched aromas of potpourri spices, meat, cocoa powder, mocha and sweet earth, with a hint of flowers. Supple, dusty and classically dry, with very dark flavors of licorice, baker's chocolate, spices and minerals. Finishes with dusty, firm tannins. Not a fruity style but this needs time to express itself."
