First word, complex! Second word, outrageous! Third word, classic! Fourth word, spice! Star anise, clove, blackberry and earth. No more words! 2014 had an early spring and a wonderful, long summer with cool nights to help maintain great acidity in the grapes. Going into the fall, temperatures cooled down quite a bit throughout the state, and we were able to hang the fruit for a longer period of time before harvest. This combination allowed us to develop more complex avors, while still maintaining the acidity, to produce bright, focused wine.

The 2014 Syrah Morrison Lane Vineyard from Walla Walla offers a perfumed bouquet of incense, white pepper, plum and hoisin sauce, as well as full-bodied richness, building tannin and a great finish. It needs short term cellaring to integrate those tannin, but is an impressive Syrah.

Precise and tautly built, with a lively core of bright acidity and firm tannins, framed by deep notes of blackberry, salty wet slate and black olive. Best after 2018. 633 cases made.
