Nose is bursting with red fruit, spice and wild flowers.

Palate is more spice, bright red fruit and a touch of cinnamon. Everything is in proportion and smooth. A hell of a syrah from Washington state.

"From shadows and imagination to reality."

This wine has so much life and lush bramble fruit. Hardly any sediment, could age much longer. I wish I had more!

A very bright and expressive Shiraz from Eastern WA! Very fruitful with little spice which I find odd because most Shiraz I've tried has been spicy. Great wine from a great state!

It's missing that tactile texture and savory side syrah owns. Plump, slightly cooked fruit. Top 40 music by way of Syrah.

Nice Syrah, full bodied but somewhat mineral, red fruit, balanced acidity, a bit of jam but not too jammy, long finish. Solid.
