    Winemaker Notes

    100% Syrah sourced from Mike Sauer's "Marcoux" Block at the celebrated Red Willow Vineyard in the far Northwest reaches of the Yakima Valley. Fausse Piste's one acre block Planted at the very top of the vineyard provides us with a small amount of older vine iconic fruit from the Pioneers of Syrah in Washington State.

    In 2010 the Yakima Valley experienced an unusually long and cool vintage, leading to darker colors and deeper aromatics while preserving acidity - a bit of a nail biter towards early October when frost damage was forecasted but relented until the 12th.

    Born and raised amongst the uncanny bounty of the wilds of the Pacific Northwest, Jesse Skiles found hiself with little choice but to explore and create with what life provides.

    Although a cook by heart and trade, a series of events in 2008 led Jesse, almost by accident, to switch to crafting wines. From the beginning, his wines have been driven by locale, climate, and cuisine, while also rooted in the traditions of the historic homeland of his profession, the Rhone Valley. Jesse hopes the wines of Fausse Piste find your table, joined by friends, family, and the bounty of the land wherever you may be.

    Columbia Valley, Washington

    View all products

    As the first recognized wine-growing region in the Pacific Northwest, Yakima Valley is centrally located within Washington’s vast Columbia Valley. The region also includes Washington’s oldest Cabernet Sauvignon vines, Otis Vineyard, planted in 1957, and Harrison Hill Vineyard, planted in 1963. Yakima Valley contains three smaller sub-regions: Rattlesnake Hills, Red Mountain, and Snipes Mountain and is ideal for both red and white wine production. In fact, Yakima Valley is Washington’s most diverse region, boasting more than 40 different grape varieties over about one hundred miles.

    The cooler parts of the valley are home to almost half of the Chardonnay and Riesling produced in the state! Both are made in a wide range of styles depending on the conditions of the vineyard site.

    But its warmer locations yield a large proportion of Washington’s best Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The finest Yakima Valley reds are jam-packed full of red cherry, currant, raspberry or blackberry fruit, as well as cocoa, herb, spice and savory notes, and exhibit a supple texture, great body, focus and length.

    Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
