Behind the Wine

2020 Red Willow Syrah

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.

Vineyards

One of the oldest in Washington, Red Willow holds the distinction of pioneering Syrah for the region. Working with MW David Lake, who consulted for us in the winery’s formative years, Syrah was planted at the site in the 1970s.
