The name references the winery's location on the east side of Walla Walla, near the state border. Fruit from Cougar Hills, Morrison Lane and the Seven Hills vineyards is blended to create this intense, dense, smoky Syrah, bursting with tangy berries. Focused, spicy, tart and complex, the juicy fruit flavors layered and compact.
