Winemaker's Notes

#72 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

The 2006 growing season in the Columbia Valley presented a year of extremes in weather. The spring was wet and cooler than normal leading into a long, hot summer. Summer provided ideal conditions of dry weather, warm days and cool nights. Harvest began early, with some white grapes picked in late August. A cooler period in Mid-September slowed things down and allowed more hang time for enhanced flavor development.

Pure elixir, viscous and rich, saturated with blueberry, raspberry fruit. Deep with game and spice. Full in the mouth and long on pleasure! Syrah!

Critical Acclaim

"Smooth, polished and wide-open in texture, with gorgeous plum and blueberry fruit getting added nuances from hints of Indian spices. The finish lingers effortlessly. Drink now through 2016. 2,436 cases made."
