Dick Boushey's vineyard sits well above the valley floor in the central Yakima Valley north of Grandview.
The steep, south-facing hillside of calcified vesicular basalt captures the sun's intensity and provides for
excellent, gradual ripening; long growing conditions; and heightened complexity. It has been described
as, "the best syrah vineyard in the state, if not the country" (Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast). Since we began
bottling the two single vineyard Syrahs in 1997 – a wonderful contrast we liken to "black and blue" --
the Grande Côte has consistently produced a wine classically Northern Rhône in character. It has
aromas of earthiness, leather, cedar, and mushrooms with high-tones of violets, cassis and blueberry
(the "blue"); followed by dense flavors of cherry, plum, licorice, smoked meats, pencil lead, toasted nuts
and truffle. It finishes with great acidity – an assurance of its excellent cellaring potential. We expect
this wine to drink well for ten to twenty years.
"This particular bottling belongs with the very best Syrahs from this Syrah-infatuated state. A broad, toasty, full-bodied and fully realized wine, it has begun to smooth out from the extra years in bottle, but has a long life ahead. Berries, cherries, chocolate, coffee, mocha, tobacco, fungus, graphite… the flavors go and go."
