Scents of violets, mixed berries and black plums lead to dusty notes of white pepper and gravelly earth. Full flavors of blueberries, blackberries and dates lead to hints of citrus-marinated smoked meats. Remarkable structure and balance lead to a robust, lingering finish.
A well-structured red that offers the spiciness and depth associated with Syrah from Walla Walla, this wine presents aromas of dark red cherries and flavors of dates, raspberries and figs with hints of cassis, spices and green olive.
Estate fruit was blended with grapes from Stone Valley Vineyard (20%) and was aged in French oak (11% new).
