Syrah, "Lady Rosa" 2009

Owen Roe

The grapes for the Lady Rosa Syrah are from small hillside blocks situated high in the cool western Yakima Valley. The vineyards yielded their small crop with ethereal aromas and wonderfully rich fruit flavors with fragrant violets and natural balanced acidity. Once in the winery, only minimal and traditional handling practices were employed.

Reviews

  • "91 points. This ripe and rich Syrah is a roiling soup of black cherry, prune, clove, orange peel and smoky meat flavors that keep kicking on the supple texture. Shows depth, just needs time to come together. Best from 2013 through 2018." (Wine Spectator)
