This is 100% Syrah, just 100 cases produced, and jumps right to the top ranks of Washington's best. Plenty of full frontal oak, but right behind it comes dark, serious, massive fruit. Beautifully layered, from hints of citrus peel, to red and blue berries, into the peppery and smoky finish, it is elegant and seamlessly integrated through flavors that last a full minute in the mouth.
