2015 Syrah

2015 Syrah
2015 Syrah

Syrah is one of my favorite wines to make and to drink.  It can be grown in many climates, expressing a wide range of flavors over those different climates.  Here in the Snake River Valley we get rich, savory Syrahs with great depth of character and smooth, even structure and tannin profiles.  This vintage we give you a twist on our classic Syrah by blending in 10% Mourvedre.  Though still a very savory Syrah, this twist gives you a more Southern Rhone, spice & fruit style.”

- Melanie Krause, Winemaker

Tasting notes

Allspice and black pepper notes in the nose develop into blackberries, dried orange peel and a hint of chai.  The intensity of the bright fruit is mouthwatering.   Expected to drink best from 2020-2015.

Production notes

Hand harvested. Fermented in 1 ton bins with 4 punch-downs per day. 10% of batches foot-stomped with stems and fermented with native yeast. Bladder pressed after an average 7 days of skin contact. Malolactic fermentation in barrel. 16 months of barrel aging in 30% new barrels, 30% 2nd and 3rd use barrels, 40% old barrels. Bottled in February 2017. 800 cases produced.

Other notes

Try this Syrah with pork tenderloin with a raspberry reduction sauce or your favorite Mediterranean lamb recipe.  When you need decadence, pair it with a chocolate ganache to reaffirm your faith in humanity.
