FULL DESCRIPTION

The Block 19 Syrah from Weinbau Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope was the first Syrah to exhibit the qualities we were looking for from the variety.  Made from the 877 clone, with its 'roots' (punn intended) in Southern France, this Syrah is produced with a focus on minimal intervention.  We leave it on its lees for an extended period of time, stirring those lees early in its cellaring.  The wine will spend 22 - 24 months in barrel.  It is unfined and unfiltered, with incredibly dark yet lively fruit, and a smoky aromatic substructure.
