Damn, sunshine and Syrah in good hands makes a great wine. Bold but balanced, this is well made Syrah that if I had the patience could go another 5-10 years easy. Great nose, violets, leather, dusky rose and a hint of earth. Palate is a really lovely match of acid and tannin. Slight sweetness gives way to a lingering deep berry fruit and a sense of measured power. Held up well against my smoked Highland Cattle brisket in Pendleton Whiskey BBQ sauce. Didn't over power was a pretty spot on match.

The Hudson Vyrd is a special place for growing Syrah. This wine is very brooding with peppery spice, smoked meat and dark red fruit. #faillawines

Good but not quite where it needs to be. Whole cluster crush proves to be a bit austere green and "stemmy" at current stage of development.

2012 vintage drank on NYE 2017. Very good! Smooth and well rounded flavor with spicy, peppery notes. Looking forward to aging our other bottles a few more years.
