Fascinating. If I were blinded on it I might think it was a Grenache. It’s silky and elegant and just when you think it’s all fruit and flowers you swirl your glass one more time and a black olive catapults out. Not because you utilized physics to get an object out of a glass without inverting it. Sorry. But the smell of olives is like the chaser to the bouquet. So essentially if syrah were a goth martini (black olive garnish) it would be this but one the higher vermouth percentage scale. Please try it.

Striking Syrah. Extremely floral with nice concentration of dried red fruits and flower petals. Elegantly balanced at 12.4% alc. with soft new oak. Well rounded. Introspective.

Tasted like maple (syrup - not tree) and oak. Interesting and unusual, but not something I’d seek again.

A WA syrah under 16% ABV? Sign me up. There is some lovely fruit in here—great floral notes and a hint of banana. Would have liked a bit more complexity, but this is very lovely and quaffable. More of this from WA producers, please.
