2015 Double Canyon Vineyard Syrah
This wine comes entirely from our estate Double Canyon Vineyard and is crafted to showcase the best characteristics of our land. Our 90-acre parcel is planted to 1,850 vines per acre, exceeding typical Washington standards; this high density produces less fruit on each individual vine, thus increasing overall quality. The vineyard is planted to a range of different clones that have been selected for the characteristics they have displayed from our site over the past decade of winegrowing. The fruit is hand-harvested and we perform daily pump overs for extraction. Once fermentation is accomplished, the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 16 months.
Showing a deep ruby color in the glass, our 2015 Double Canyon Vineyard Syrah expresses aromas of rich caramel, cedar and hints of rose petal. The entry possesses good structure with generous amounts of black and red fruits, accented by vanilla crème, root beer, black tea and spice, leading into a long, juicy finish with lingering notes of mouthwatering red plum.
