Limited production, tight and interesting. This 100% Petite Sirah is one of just a handful of varietal versions of the grape made in Washington. It features ripe berry flavors—blueberry in particular—wrapped in well-managed tannins with hints of caramel running through the finish. Still young, primary fruit, with a sharp edge to the tannins. Give it a couple more years in the cellar for optimal drinking.
