In the nose, this Syrah shows bold expressions of jammy raspberries, orange peel, white pepper and pomegranates. The flavors are lush, bright and saturated and also include a core flavor of fruits and leather. This is a huge wine! It has a black purple color and an extremely long finish that lasts for what seems like many, many minutes.

Behind the Wine
1999 Syrah 1.5L
Nowhere on earth does the venerable Syrah grapevine feel more at home than in the arid and sun-drenched Yakima Valley of Washington State. Both the sandy loam soils and cool nights contribute to crafting a wine with incredible generosity of flavors and spices, qualities that elevate Syrah into an unparalleled category.
