Winemaker's Notes

"Columbia pioneered Syrah in Washington State, and still leads the pack at this price point. Smooth and varietal, it mixes ripe (not raisiny) fruit in a sleek, muscular wine laced with vanilla, smoked meat and tar."
- Wine Enthusiast

Deep Ruby Red with a bright purple edge. Black cherry and smoky dark fruitiness. Full and sweet in the mouth with a touch of vanilla and good underlying acidity and chalky, ripe tannins. Lingering finish.
