Winemaker's Notes:

Supple on the entry, showing harmonious flavors of plum and cherry accented by notes of orange, espresso and cedar. Finishes with velvety tannins. This superbly balanced and crafted Syrah would be an excellent match for seared beef fillet or rack of lamb.

About Barnard Griffin Winery:

Barnard Griffin Winery was established in 1983 by Winemaker Rob Griffin and his wife, Deborah Barnard. Rob saw the opportunity to make great wine in Washington and moved north in 1977. Pleased with his move to Washington, he says "The northern latitude of Washington and the ideally drained sandy soils of the Columbia Valley make it possible to produce deeply concentrated wines of pronounced character."
