2021 Signature Syrah

The 2021 Signature Syrah sings on release, displaying a classic floral and charcuterie combination that is what Washington State Syrah is all about. Dark plum, violets and dried meats are the dominant aromas that lead way to a touch of orange pith and blueberry compote. The velvety texture lays on the palate effortlessly, with a juicy quality that shows the concentration of the vintage. This wine brings ‘all the feels’ invoking a great deal of satisfaction. Seamless balance, purity of fruit, and a luxurious mouthfeel makes this wine hard to put down. Enjoy now or cellar 10+ years. – N.B

A sleek and savory syrah with aromas of black cherries, blackberries, licorice, grilled herbs and black olives. It’s full-bodied with silky tannins and a caressing core of dark fruit. Delicious spice and saline undertones, with persistency. 99% syrah and 1% viognier, co-fermented. Drink or hold. – James Suckling

Pairing Suggestion

Lamb Sliders — Pair Syrah with grilled meats, vegetables, wild game, stews and chilis. Marbled cuts of beef (Grilled New York or Ribeye Steak) stand up to the flavors of Syrah.

Behind the Wine

2021 Signature Syrah

Nowhere on earth does the venerable Syrah grapevine feel more at home than in the arid and sun-drenched Yakima Valley of Washington State. Both the sandy loam soils and cool nights contribute to craft­ing a wine with incredible generosity of flavors and spices, qualities that elevate Syrah into an unparalleled category. We choose to co-ferment Syrah (98%) with Viognier (2%), adding another dimension of citrus and floral spices to the bouquet. Given the full character of this wine, the French oak barrels take a modest role in the background of our Signature Syrah.
