This iconic vineyard provide the fruit for some of Washington's greatest Syrahs. Complex scents of peat and cherry, dusty tannins and an earthy midpalate complement tart cranberry fruit flavor. Although the stamp of Boushey terroir is clearly expressed, this is not as full or deep as some other examples, it seems a bit flat.
