Winemaker's Notes

Our 2006 Syrah relies heavily on grapes from our estate vineyard, Stillwater Creek (70%). The soil here is mixed with large pieces of fractured basalt; and visitors often remark on its similarity to the Rhone Valley, perhaps one reason why Syrah from here is so outstanding.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Syrah Columbia Valley emits aromas of smoke, bacon, grilled meat, and blueberry. Full-bodied and round on the palate, it manages to retain a sense of elegance with its tasty fruit and excellent balance. It will provide pleasure over the next 6-8 years. "
