Winemaker's Notes:

Dark in color with purple at the rim. This wine has a strong mixture of fruit and barrel aromas. Flavor is supple, focused and intense, a lithe mouthful of bright blueberry and plum tinged with spice notes, which swirl through the expressive finish.

Blend: 66% Red Mountain Syrah and 34% Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

My Notes:

About Gorman Winery:

Gorman Winery was established in 2002 in Woodinville, Washington and currently produces 3000 cases annually. Gorman specializes in luscious Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. With a pioneering spirit, they have utilized techniques in Washington state including barrel fermentation of all of their reds to produce stylistic and grand wines from a very powerful grape growing region. Their focus has been on capturing the beauty, finesse and complexity of this intense growing region without sacrificing its unique terroir and sense of place. Winemaker and owner, Chris Gorman, has been a one-man-show winery since the fall of 2011, until he brought on his first assistant winemaker.
