This is a splendid Walla Walla Syrah, co-fermented with Viognier from the Dwelley vineyard. Penetrating and complex, its aromas border on the exotic, and there is so much going in the nose that you almost forget to taste it! It captures the unique, lifted, citrus and spice flavors of great Washington Syrah, adding in tangy cinnamon and spiced plum through a long, silky finish.
