2021 Estate Syrah - Mourvèdre - Grenache

2021 Estate Syrah - Mourvèdre - Grenache
Walla Walla Valley

We have been experimenting with Mediterranean varietals for years now, and are excited about this release of our Walla Walla Valley Estate Syrah - Mourvèdre - Grenache blend. Fermented with native yeasts and spontaneous malolactic fermentation, this blend will change from year to year to produce a wine inspired by some of our old world favorites. This wine was produced from grapes grown at Woodward Canyon Estate Vineyard (Salmon Safe certified) at the western edge of the Walla Walla Valley.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine is deep ruby red in color with aromatics of Italian plum, fig, oregano, and Nicoise olive. In the mouth, jammy fruit notes evolve nicely into a smooth mouthfeel with subtle oak expressions. Its bright fruit and acidity make it a very food-worthy wine.
94 POINTS - Owen Bargreen: The 2021 ‘Mourvedre-Grenache-Syrah’ combines 50% Syrah with equal parts Mourvèdre and Grenache that was sourced from their estate vineyard. Stored in a small portion of new oak barrels, this offers white pepper-dusted bacon, black olives, blackberry, and shades of creosote on the nose. This is wonderfully balanced with good poise. Every working part here is moving in unison. Only 201 cases were made. Drink 2023-2033
