Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 98% Syrah and 2% Grenache.

This is a special collaboration of the red and white winemaking teams from Chateau Ste. Michelle. The Syrah grapes are received and pressed at just the right color and fl avor at our red facility in eastern Washington. Then most of the juice is transported to Woodinville in western Washington where it is cold fermented to retain all the wonderful fruit and fl oral aromas of the Syrah grape. It shows beautiful fruit aromas and fl avors of strawberry, raspberry and subtle spice notes.

Enjoy this during your summer parties and fall barbecues. For a change of pace, try this with some hard cheeses and even turkey.

About Chateau Ste. Michelle:

Founded in 1934, Chateau Ste. Michelle is the oldest winery in Washington with some of the most mature vineyards in the Columbia Valley. The winery combines Old World winemaking with New World innovation and is best known for its award-winning Riesling, Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Chateau Ste. Michelle receives some of the highest accolades in the industry, including "American Winery of the Year" by Wine Enthusiast for 2004 and "2005 Winery of the Year" by Restaurant Wine. In addition, the winery's Eroica Riesling, crafted from a partnership with German winemaker Ernst Loosen, has been named to Wine Spectator's prestigious "Top 100" wines list for five consecutive years.

Chateau Ste. Michelle is one of the few premium wineries in the world with two state-of-the-art wineries, one devoted to whites and another to reds. This dedicated approach to winemaking allows winemaker Bob Bertheau to build winemaking programs to the unique specifications of red and white wines. While all of Chateau Ste. Michelle's vineyards are located on the east side of the Cascade Mountains where the climate is dry and sunny, Bob Bertheau makes the award winning white wines in Woodinville, 15 miles northeast of Seattle. The winery's expansive, 87-acre estate hosts more than 250,000 visitors annually for tours, tastings, dinners and outdoor summer concerts.
